I've posted this map a few months ago but now i've updated it with the new langauges that have been released since then, and all mistakes should have been corrected.

Is it alright if I share this on /r/Duolingo? I will give credit, of course.

And this is really cool! Map data is really interesting to look at.

This is nice map but the US has no official languages. The same goes for a few other countries.

Good observation, I'm guessing he just used English and Spanish, the two biggest languages.

However many countries (for example the USA, Australia, Japan etc.) have de facto languages.

July 24, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/NameNameName1234

A few things worth noting. First, I don't think that there's Belarusian for DuoLingo here. Second, many countries in Europe don't have all their languages represented - There's no courses here for Breton or Basque, for instance. Third, there's a Bengali for English course in the incubator and that's the only national language of Bangladesh, if I'm not mistaken.

July 22, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/therealpalumbo

This is solely the official languages of each country, so Breton or Basque wouldn't be counted. And Russian is also an official language of Belarus.

July 23, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/NameNameName1234

Isn't Breton an official minority language of France (and Basque in Spain)? I read somewhere that they are, though upon later research I struggled to find my sources again.

But I didn't know that Russian is an official language of Belarusian, thanks for that. You learn something new every day, I guess.

With Arabic and Chinese duolingo would cover almost all the world! But don't forget that there are a lot of little languages officials (or unofficials but really used) only in some regions of the states

    they are co-official. It's misleading not considering Spain in light green when there aren't by far all the native languages Spanish people uses in their dailylife...

    Sorry, I still don't get it :) I though blue means a language is being developed - so what is grey/blue and green/light green?

    July 21, 2016

    https://www.duolingo.com/julie.maksimova

    I think the light green/blue means that one language is on Duo and another is being developed (like in India English is already there and Hindi is in the incubator)

    I think that Russian is not an official language in Tajikistan anymore. After the fall of the USSR it had a semi-official status as a language of "inter-ethnic communication", but this status was removed several years ago.
