    In terms of the number of countries that speak a specific language English is the most spoken language in the world with 60 countries speaking it. French is second with 29 countries, followed by Arabic with 25 countries, with Spanish coming in fourth with 21 countries speaking it, and Italian and Portuguese are tied for fifth with 11 countries speaking either language.

     When it comes to a language being spoken by its natives Mandarin is first, Spanish is second and English is third. When it comes to the amount of people worldwide who speak a certain language there are just over 1 billion people who speak Mandarin, English is second at just over 765 million people, and Spanish drops to third with over 500 million people.

    Mandarin is the most spoken language in the world in terms of population. There are an estimated 935 million native speakers and possibly over 955 million people worldwide who speak Mandarin. It is mostly spoken in China, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Singapore. Spanish, English, Hindi and Arabic round out the top 5 in that order.
