About the Solomon Islands
Located in Oceania, the Solomon Islands are a group of islands in the South Pacific Ocean, east of Papua New Guinea. The Solomon Islands are made up of more than 990 different islands. All combined, they cover 10,985 square miles, an area slightly smaller than Maryland. They are inhabited by 550,000 people according to a 2012 census. The official language is English although it is only spoken by 1-2% of the population. Melanesian pidgin in much of the country is lingua franca, or language systematically used to communicate between persons not sharing a mother tongue. Aside from these, there are an additional 120 indigenous languages spoken.
