I really don't understand that France apparently just has 97% of people who speak French. Of native speakers, sure, but even recent immigrants learn French within a few years, and there aren't enough annual immigrants to make up such a high percentage. Or does this include tourists? Really, I don't get it - if someone has an explanation, I'd be glad to hear it!

Might be because of places like French Guiana and French Polynesia as well as some recent immigrants. France still has some ex-colonies in the world that are considered part of the country and referred to as territories.

French Guyana is a région, so it's considered part of France the same way Normandy does. But there's a lot of immigration (a lot illegal) from Brazil and Suriname.

3% is a tiny number for a country that has so many immigrants, and that is within less than 100 km or so of about 15 other countries, most of which are full of people who do not speak French. Obviously no, it does not count tourists.

Switzerland has not 66%... this seems to be the percentage for German-speaking ones (I'm a French-speaking Swiss and I can tell you we represent less than 1/4 of the total population). According to Wikipedia, there are 22% French-speaking Swiss people.

Just follow the source. It says: "No distinctions are made between native speakers of French and those who learnt it as a foreign language, between different levels of mastery or how often the language is used in daily life."

I've heard that the Swiss are very multilingual. German, French, Italian, and Romansch are all official languages, so they probably learn more than one in school.

France still has an excellent image in Lebanon, especially within the Maronites. They saw France as their protector during the nineteenth century and then France created Lebanon to be their homeland.

Have you even looked at the source given at the top (I suspect not). And the quiz is not about first language speakers, so the stat about Switzerland is likely to be correct (the Swiss being famed multi-linguists).

Just about all Europeans and a surprising number of Africans and Latin Americans are multi-lingual. We seem to be one of the few "civilized" countries which tenaciously clings to our mono-lingualism as if it were a badge of honor.
