Tower of Babel


I found this today while searching for something completely different.  It’s a list ranking the most spoken languages in the world and it’s quite interesting.  Not surprisingly, Mandarin is first on the list but Spanish in the number 2 spot came as a bit of a surprise.  Seeing that Czech ranks at number 73 on the list, I don’t feel so terrible about not speaking it.  And, unlike my buddy Barack Obama, I can speak 2 of the top 10 languages fluently and know enough Russian to get myself into trouble in Moscow.  That’s three languages, Barry O.  Merci beaucoup.  What you got?
