These are just estimates. No official list has been compiled, though such a task has been attempted. For this map, I've relied on personal experience, anecdotes from friends, and similarity to languages spoken nearby. Each language is given to exactly one country, and no country represents more than one language. I considered a variety of factors when producing these estimates, such as similarity to English grammar and vocabulary, similarity to Latin alphabet, ease of finding learning aides, and accomodations typically made by native speakers. Notes: Swahili = Tanzania Arabic = Saudi Arabia Afrikaans = South Africa
