Map with the most spoken language by country in the world
Here is a map with the most spoken language for each country. This is not the official language, but the most widely used language for the different countries. Thus in many nations, the official language is English or French, but it is not necessarily the language used by the population on a daily basis. We could have presented a map with the main language for each region, but that would have required a higher resolution map, as some countries have more than 200 languages.
We note that the Spanish conquest was prolific in Central and South America. Likewise with Modern Standard Arabic which has spread to countries in North Africa and the Middle East. English has persisted in some African countries, as has Portuguese and French.
We note, however, that Africa remains very eclectic in terms of languages, it is the richest continent in various dialects.
