How to get current language in Drupal 8?


To get the current language on a Drupal 8 site you need to run the following code

 * this will return "en", "fr" ...
$language = \Drupal::languageManager()->getCurrentLanguage()->getId();

To get the language name instead of the language code use this.

 * this will return "english", "french" ...
$language =  \Drupal::languageManager()->getCurrentLanguage()->getName();
