Teke–Mbere is a proposed intermediate group of Bantu languages, coded Zone B.50–80 in Guthrie's classification, along with the erstwhile Mbundu language Songo. According to Nurse & Philippson (2003), they are:

  • Nzebi (B.50)
  • Mbete (B.60)
  • Teke (B.70–80)
  • Songo (H.20)
  • Ethnologue suggests that the unclassified Songo "dialect" of Yansi (B.80) may be the same as the Songo here.
