Most Multilingual Countries In The World

 herb

The number of languages spoken in a country depends very much on its history and its demographic makeup.

Some countries are very linguistically diverse, yet only recognize one or two languages as being “official”, whereas others make more of an effort to increase accessibility to information for all people in their own mother tongues.
