This one is definitely harder than the other two. Simply because there are very few languages actually named for countries. Good Quiz!

Tough quiz. I don't believe that there are only 6.5M native English speakers in Africa though. I'm aware that many (most?) speak it as a second language, but it still seems incredibly low to me.

Wolof is certain to be added when I update this quiz to the standards of the others. I'm not sure about the others.
