Thoughts [Jul. 17th, 2002|05:51 pm]

Here is a thing to think about ...

What are the 20 most spoken languages in the world?
I think my list is by the number of people who speak the language throughout the world either as their first "Mother Tongue" or as a language they use for everyday communication.

Just to make it easier why not guess the top 5 ... I'm sure most of you will get at least 2 wrong! Go on, reply here with your guesses and I'll put you out of your misery later :)

I once knew these... I know Mandarin is first but I don't know what the order of the rest of them is... Chinese Mandarin, English, Hindi, Spanish, and... Bengali???

If you think about it geographically, it makes sense.

Watch me be wrong! Then I will feel stupid! ;-)
