WATCH: Nigeria's male and female languages

Men and women in the rural community of Ubang in southern Nigeria speak different languages from each other.

Children in the community learn the female language first but are expected at the age of 10-years-old to speak the language corresponding to their own sex. 

It is believed to be the only community, in the world, that has a language for each sex.
