I love learning languages! So far, I can speak: English, Catalan, Spanish and I am now learning Slovenian. How many languages do you speak? Which ones? Which ones would you like to learn?
Did you know?
There are around 6,500 languages in the world! Maybe one day I will know them all 🙂
These are the Top 10 Languages in the World in terms of speakers:
|Language||Number of Speakers (Millions)||Rank|
Did you know that languages have families, just like people? These languages are related, which means some words in them sound very alike, like Spanish and Italian, or English and German.
These are the Top 5 language families of the world:
|Family||Number of Languages||Languages Included|
|Niger-Congo||1,542||Yoruba, Igbo, Fula and Zulu|
|Austronesian||1,275||Malay, Javanese and Tagalog|
|Trans-New Guinea||482||Melpa, Kuman, Enga, Huli, Western Dani|
|Sino-Tibetan||455||Chinese, Burmese, Tibetic|
|Indo-European||448||All European languages except Basque.|
Basque is the only non Indo-European language in Europe. That means it’s really old. And really cool! In the Basque region they call it Euskera.
I hope you like this post! Get in touch and tell me what languages you know 🙂 🙂 🙂
