1. Portugal - Portugese! I know this because:
I have been there. And it kind of makes sense that the Portuguese should speak...well... Portuguese!
2. Austria - German. And apparantly a bit of Croatian too! I know this because: I learned German in school. And that was one of it's selling points, "Learn this language! It's spoken in Germany... AND AUSTRIA! And Switzerland! And Liechtenstein! You will be so lost without it!" And I have a Croatian friend who once told me that she can get by with her Croatian in Austria. Which was news to me!
3. Belgium - French, German, and Dutch. I know this because: I have been there!
4. New Zealand - English! And I'm guessing Maori too. I know this because:: It is bloody New Zealand!
5. Luxembourg - German and French. I know this because: Again... it's just one of those things you know!
6. The Netherlands - Dutch!I know this because: of our delightful Marty!
7. Scotland - English, and Gaelic!I know this because: I'd be an idiot not to.
8. Wales - English, and Welsh. I know this because: I have family there. All the road signs and leaflets distributed tend to be in both Welsh and English. Though most Welsh people don't actually speak much Welsh at all.
9. Ireland - English and Gaelic. I know this because: It's just one of those things that British people know, I suppose! I also know that there are a couple different forms of gaelic and that Irish passports are half written in Gaelic!
10. Canada - English, French, and Russian. I know this because: I had a Canadian friend at school. I didn't find out that parts of Canada speak Russian until last week in Vegas though. There was a couple at the grand canyon, and our pilot asked if they were French Canadian, and they were all "No. We're Russian Canadian! We speak Russian." Which I guess makes sense, as Alaska was once part of Russia, and that borders Canada.
11. Brazil - Portugeuse. I know this because: Half because of Bia! And half becuase we studied South America during my history degree, and learned all about the Treaty of Tordesillas which divided the Americas into what was claimed for Portugal and what was claimed for Spain.
12. Mexico - Spanish. I know this because: it's impossible not to! haha.
13. South Africa - English, Afrikaans, and about twenty other different languages! I know this because: I have South African friends, some of which speak about 5 languages, all native to their home country.
I know most of these through either having been to the places, or having friends from them, or having studied them at degree. It's very little to do with the rubbish education I received, especially at secondary school level!! haha
