How many languages do you speak? When we think about languages, where I live, it’s typically English, Maori, Pacific Island languages and Asian languages. At school you might add French, German and Spanish. According to the interactive map, there are 25 Living Languages in New Zealand.
It’s pretty incredible to think that today there are still over 7,000 languages being spoken around the world. It’s really interesting to browse different countries and see how many languages are spoken in them. Ireland surprised me with only 6 languages spoken.
Which country do you think has only 1 living language and a language diversity of 0?
