Surely, you have been curious about learning a new language but you still don’t know which one to choose. Maybe a Romance language like French? Or how about a Germanic, like English? There are more than 6,900 languages spoken worldwide, with more than thirty million speakers.
If the previous figure surprised you, it will be hard for you to believe that what determines how spoken a language is, is not exactly its presence in several countries, but the number of speakers around the globe.
Let me explain: one might think that the most spoken language in the world is English given that it is the language used internationally for business and, in general, it is the “frenzy” of travelers around the world. However, to our surprise, English does not occupy the number one position among the most spoken, and the reason lies in demographic issues that you’ll see later.
One of the official languages of the European Union and the most studied worldwide as a second language, present in 118 countries with 378 million native speakers. English is known as the language of opportunities and business as it is widely used in international diplomatic negotiations and international trade. In addition, as we mentioned before, as it is the most studied language around the world, it represents a multipass when touristing in foreign-speaking countries.
