Global Languages

The Rosetta Stone
It made a language out of
Egypt's Hieroglyphics.

Global Languages


Language is the primary way that most

Humans with speaking ability communicate.

Those who are unable to speak also have a Language,

it is called Sign Language.


Spoken language is what sets us apart from the

other living creatures who inhabit this Planet with us.

We learn our individual language at our Mother's knee

and hopefully will retain it all of our lives.


As for current Global Language statistics,

Mandarin Chinese has the most speakers,

 with Spanish second and English third.


These web sites will allow you to explore some

of the places where Language is defined:
