Native Speakers: Spanish (1st= Mandarin) Total Speakers: Mandarin (1st= English) Most Widely Spoken: Spanish (1st= English) 2nd most spoken language is Mandarin. (English being first.) Generally speaking, English is often found as a nation's second language. One reason for this was the large numbe…r of present day nations that were colonized by Great Britain. Another thought on this was at one period of time, French was known as the language of international diplomacy. The downfall of Napoleon, and the continuing influence of the British Empire, made English the generally accepted replacement in diplomatic communications. Another factor is that in the airline industry, English is the language used for air controller - pilot communications. ( Full Answer )

The first language is a hypothetical concept known as Proto-Worldor Proto-Sapiens. it existed sometime between 200,000 years ago and50,000 years ago. It has no writing and it is only a hypothesis. It is also possible that different languages emerged at roughly thesame time in different parts of the …globe; it is unlikely that all modern languages evolved from one single parent language.At any rate, there's no way of knowing for sure, as writtenlanguage post-dates spoken language by thousands or perhapsmillions of years.

This question is a very interesting one that has a rather complicated answer. Estimates of how many people speak a language are quite general and can vary considerably. For example, English estimates vary from 275 to 450 million, Spanish from 150 to over 300 million, Hindi from 150 to 350 million, a…nd Russian from 150 to 180 million. To further complicate matters, the definition of "speaker" can be vague. Some surveys of languages give information on native speakers only. Others count both native speakers and secondary speakers (those who use the language regularly or primarily even though it is not their native language). Lastly, it is important to consider not only the population (number) of language speakers, but also the geographic distribution of these languages. Some languages have relatively large populations of native speakers but are used almost exclusively in a few countries. On the other hand, other languages have relatively small populations of native speakers but are used in many different countries as an official or national language. The Summer Institute for Linguistics (SIL) Ethnologue Survey (1999) lists the following as the top languages by population: (number of native speakers in parentheses) 1. Chinese* (937,132,000) 2. Spanish (332,000,000) 3. English (322,000,000) 4. Bengali (189,000,000) 5. Hindi/Urdu (182,000,000) 6. Arabic* (174,950,000) 7. Portuguese (170,000,000) 8. Russian (170,000,000) 9.

Unfortunately, there is no way to tell, because languages are in a state of continual evolution. Many people want their language to be considered the oldest, and you will frequently get these answers: Mandarin, Hindi, Sanskrit, Tamil, Hebrew, Arabic, Latin, Hungarian, etc. But the truth is, no one …knows.

At the beginning of the world there was no life and so there was no language. 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".

Chinese Most people thought it was English, but majority of the people speak Chinese, due to the big population in China itself
English, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, German, French, Norwegian, Vietnamese, Arabic, Russian, Hindi, Bengali, Japanese, Italian, etc. There are around 6500 languages spoken in the world, obviously too much to type.
With highest number of native speakers at 1025 million (1.02b) mandarin wins if you are talking about native speakers only. But English really wins, not only because it is far more spread out over the globe, but because the total number of speakers in the world totals 1800 million (1.8b).
