Isn't it English in Belize? People do learn Spanish because they're surrounded by Spanish speaking countries, but otherwise it's English. Also for Andorra it's Catalan, not Spanish, though many do speak Spanish and/or French as well.

I wonder how many people in the Vatican are fluent in Spanish.

And is it just me or is it surprising that so few people speak Spanish in Trinidad and Tobago? It’s so incredibly close to Venezuela yet I believe less than 5% of citizens can speak it

I think this comment thread is justification for a rule that bans people from making comments in future if they make the same comment that has been made and responded to over and over and over and over again. It's funny after the first couple of times but seriously?!

I'm mad about Andorra and Belize. Andorra is Catalan speaking, most inhabitants speak Catalan since it's the official language. I never think of it as Spanish speaking. The same for Belize, it's an English speaking country, I've seen the justifications for adding it here but it just doesn't go. Please, consider removing them.

Are you going to deport a bunch of Spanish speakers from Andorra and Belize? Anyways, even without Catalan, Andorra does speak mostly Spanish, same thing with Belize. There is literally 0 justification on a quiz where it is not by official language, yet the percentage of how many people speak it in said country, of which Andorra and Belize, despite having more speakers of Catalan and English respectively, have most of their population speak Spanish.
