most studied languages in 2023
During my stay in Europe in the summer of 2022, I was amazed by how multilingual Europeans are. The proximity to their neighbors and multilingualism within certain European countries are big factors in Europeans' ability to speak multiple languages. Countries like Switzerland and Belgium have multiple national languages: French, German, Italian, and Romansh in Switzerland; and Dutch, French, and German in Belgium.
With global tourism, globalization and cross-border commerce on the rise, we also see a spike in the interest in foreign languages in The US.
Spanish takes first place when it comes to being the most studied foreign language in the US, closely followed by French. French is the most popular language to study in the UK. Most popular languages in the EU are English, French, German, Italian, and Russian.
It is also very important to mention that Mandarin Chinese and Japanese are the fastest growing languages to study in the world. The popularity of anime and China's role in the global market are two big factors in the rise of those two languages.
