With the help of Wikipedia and the CIA’s World Factbook, The Post Chronicle compiled a list of the top 10 most spoken languages in the world.
This report goes through the list, explaining where each language is spoken, its origins and what language category it falls under (i.e. romance, Slavic, etc.).
English comes in at third place on the list, with two other languages beating it out for first. Not surprisingly, Mandarin Chinese is the number one spoken world language, with over one billion speakers. So, which language comes in as the second most spoken in the world?
