What Are The Ten Most Widely Spoken Languages

Take a wild guess at what you think the number one most widely spoken language is, if you said, or thought to yourself, Mandarin Chinese, then you are absolutely correct. Mandarin Chinese counts almost 900 million native speakers and another almost 200 million non-native speakers, so about 1.1 billion people on the planet speak it. Pretty impressive right? And incase you’re wondering, at least for right now, despite the popularity of the Chinese language we currently do not have plans to create our own language learning placemats just yet.
