Madagascar Education





South eastern trade winds dominate the climate and weather of Madagascar, producing a hot rainy season with frequently destructive cyclones, and a relatively cooler dry season. Broadly speaking, the climate is tropical along the coast, temperate inland, and arid in the south but factors such as regional elevation produce significant regional variation.


The Malagasy language is of Malayo-Polynesian origin and is generally spoken throughout the island. Madagascar is a francophone country, and French is spoken among the educated population.


The Malagasy ariary is the official currency of Madagascar. The ISO code for the Malagasy ariary is MGA. The ariary is only one of two circulating currencies in the world with division units not based on a power of ten, but instead each ariary consists of five iraimbilanja.



In 2007, Madagascar population is hovering at around 19, 500, 000. The growth rate of Madagascar population in 2007 is 3.008%.
