The most widely spoken languages in the world and the countries they are spoken in
This infographic illustrates the most widely spoken languages in the world and some of the countries these languages are spoken in. The station name indicates the language and the number of speakers that languages has and the map illustrates some of the countries these languages are spoken in. The list of countries is not exhaustive but can help the viewer navigate the world of languages. The inspiration for this map came from the London Underground map – which in fact is not a map but a schematic diagram. As a schematic diagram it shows not the geographic but the relative positions of stations along the lines, stations’ connective relations with each other and their fare zone locations.
Pretty cool huh?
