Added on: 22nd Mar 2016
Spoken in Italy and Switzerland, Italy is the 8th largest
economy in the world.
Primarily spoken in Portugal and Brazil, with Brazil’s economy
picking up speed this language could gain international
significance in the future.
Spoken in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Canada, Switzerland
and elsewhere, many prosperous nations use this language at home.
Although it is spoken by significantly less people than many other
languages on this list, and in only 3 countries, those countries
(Germany, Austria, Switzerland) account for roughly 7% of the entire
world’s GDP. That means that learning German definitely opens
the door to some potentially high paying jobs.
Spoken in more countries than any other language, Spanish also
has the second highest number of native speakers after Mandarin.
With the third largest economy on Earth, Japan plays a
significant role in international affairs.
Although it is for the most part only spoken in China, the
population of China is so big that Chinese social media
platforms like Weibo make Twitter and Facebook look like
they don’t have any users (remember, Facebook is banned there).
English has become the lingua France of modern society. From the
streets of New York to the back alleys of Mumbai, if you can’t
speak English, well, you wouldn’t even be able to read this to
find out what you are missing!
