Languages have always amazed me. It’s just a sound that comes out of your mouth but it’s so much more…
I only speak one language fluently but I can get by in Thai too if I need to, I am also trying to learn a little French but I think after learning Thai I have worn myself out. I’m not great at languages… you can tell, I know.
There are around 6,500 – 7,000 languages around the world. Over 2000 of those have less than 1000 speakers, also there are 46 languages that have just one speaker… which I have to say makes me wonder why.
These are vast numbers. There are 2,200 languages spoken in Asia alone which makes Europe seem like small fry with just 260 languages. UNESCO are warning that 2,500 languages are in danger of becoming extinct.
I now feel pretty useless with my 1 & 1/2 languages to my name.
The most used languages are
So they’re the most useful to use but not in my opinion the most fun, I might just have to try something just for fun maybe Mongolian…..
