I think Luxembourg's situation is too complex to determine "most commonly spoken". How do you define that in a country where education is trilingual and Luxembourgish is the most common native language?

I'm guessing the same way we have statistics for every other multi-lingual country in the world: censuses

But isn't there a lingua franca or is it totally regional, or… I guess what I'm asking is what makes this different than any other country in a similar situation?

There genuinely isn't a lingua franca. It's not like a lot of places where there's separate language groups and then one second language everyone speaks for inter-group purposes. Basically all native Luxembourgers are trilingual, and all three get used interchangeably.

Yes, they go to school in French for 4 years and then switch to German for next 4 years or something like that. Speaking natively the local heavy dialect.

Yes they do. According to Wikipedia, 64.4% speak it natively. It should at least be an acceptable answer.

Something is wrong about Kazakhstan... Kazakh is most commonly spoken, according to many sources

According to this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Languages_of_Luxembourg Luxembourgish is spoken by the majority of the population as a native tongue. 52% to 16% French. Definitely needs to be updated or if you want to have French as an answer use a different country.

The Belarussian language is not the same as Russian. The two are very similar to each other, but are still different. If you ever visit Belarus [and I know you won't], and you call people there Russian, they will not be very happy.

Yes - I think belarus may have been a bit problematic as a country. I believe that any OFFICIAL census figures are likely to be inaccurate for political purposes. You don't dissent in belarus! The reality is that MOST people will speak some form of Rusyn (whether you want to call this Belarusian; Russian or Ruthenian) A very troubling answer fraught with political repercussions. dave

Please change the flag of Belarus. It is off-putting. Apart from that it was a great quiz! Please make more of these!
