This is pretty interesting. I've always known that there were a lot of Chinese speakers but I didn't know Russian was this widely spoken too.

This image is inspiring me to drop popular languages and learn the unpopular ones especially the rich varieties we have in Africa.

Great info and visual. I'm surprised to see two Asian countries in the chart with English native speakers.

Some of these languages, I've never even heard of. The only languages I knew from India were Tamil and Hindi.

I worked for an Indian-owned staffing firm and I also didn't know. I really thought it was just Hindi and Tamil. :P

No idea. Could be a tribal thing. That and it's a big area. Too lazy to Google. Hehehe.
