1. English — 1.5 Billion Speakers
The English language dates back to the 5th century AD, when Germanic tribes invaded the isle of Britain. Today, nearly 1.5 billion people speak it, including 480 million native English speakers. That's 20 percent of the world!
As the world's most commonly spoken language, English is also considered the official language of international business.
