Malcolm Gasri included Rundi (along with Rwanda and several other languages) in group D60 of zone D, assigning him the number D62. Later, based on this group (as well as a number of others from zones D and E), zone J was formed, which was absent in Hasri. Therefore, now, according to the SIL classification and the classification of the Tervuren school , the Rundi language has the number J62.
Rundi is very close to the language of Rwanda , the main language of neighboring Rwanda , and the Giha language, common in western Tanzania . Rundi and Rwanda are mutually understood.
