What language was spoken at the beginning of the world?
At the beginning of the world there was no life and so there was
After life had formed and evolved over a few million years in to sophisticated multi cell organisms such as fish, basic communication signals were used by different species. For example some fish will swim in a pattern to indicate their availability to mate. Time moved on and eventually land animals developed and used more sophisticated communications. Dances, grunts, howls and so on. The first men (3 million years ago) must have began to develop sounds for simple communication. With each change in evolution the brain became more sophisticated and the sounds became more complex eventually becoming words. Finally in Homo Sapiens (us) it became what we have today so it is fairly safe to assume that 195,000 years ago humans had complex language. However because this time was before written record we have no way of knowing exactly how it happened for sure.
I quote from http://linguistlist.org/ask-ling/oldest.html
"In 3200 BC, there were many, many languages spoken besides Sumerian and Egyptian, but they weren't fortunate enough to have a writing system. These languages are just as old. To take one interesting case, the Albanian language (spoken north of Greece) was not written down until about the 15th century AD, yet Ptolemy mentions the people in the first century BC.* The linguistic and archaeological evidence suggests that Albanians were a distinct people for even longer than that. So Albanian has probably existed for several millennia, but has only been written down for 500 years. With a twist of fate, Albanian might be considered very "old" and Greek pretty "new".
I hope this helps
The language with the most native speakers is Mandarin. The language that is most widely spoken in the world is English. The least spoken language is a tie of about 200 languages, with only 1 or 2 remaining speakers.

English is spoken as the native language in countries such as English. It's spoken as the language of colonization and settlement in other countries such as Nigeria. It also is spoken as the second language of choice in required language learning in schools in such countries as the Netherlands and Portugal. And it's spoken as the official language in countries such as India where the linguistic situation is so explosive as to preclude one native…
The official language is the language that is mostly used in official departments. In many countries it is also the spoken language. However, in many countries it could be different than the spoken language(s) there. That happens sometime in small countries that use a more common language than their native language for official use. However, it may also occur in countries where the official language is not the common spoken language, such as in the…
English is the main language spoken in Australia, but it is not the official language, as Australia has no declared official language. English is spoken by 78.5% of Australia's population. After English, the next most common language is Chinese, which is spoken by an estimated 2.5% of the population.
