LANGUAGE DIVERSITY

Our planet has over 7 billion people who speak between 6 000 and 7 000 different languages. A few languages are spoken by hundreds of millions of speakers, such as English or Chinese, but most are spoken by only a few thousand, or just a handful of speakers. In fact, 96% of the world’s languages are spoken by just 4% of the people. language diversity is an evolving one that requires awareness, understanding and skill much in the same way as other areas of diversity. We at Communicare try to build the bridge. 16 17 18 19 20
