Skolt Saami is one of the five Eastern Saamic languages which are still spoken nowadays. Skolt Saami, Inari Saami and Akkala Saami are spoken on the mainland and Kildin Saami and Ter Saami are peninsular languages. Since the Skolt Saami are distributed over three different countries (Finland, Russia and Norway) and not all Skolt Saami aquire the language, Skolt Saami counts as a minority language which is in danger of dying out. Almost all of its speakers are bilingual.
