Language Population

A French speaking person is able to speak in France, Belgium, Quebece of Canada, some region in Switzerland, and a few other African countries (totally about 72 million). It makes French the 13th language in the ranking of population of speakers.

Number one in this list is Chinese (Mandarin), and number two surprisingly is not English, but Spanish. English is ranked three. Farsi (Persian) is ranked all the way down in 39th.
