Native speakers only? That isn't what your source is working with.

By the way, we now finished the 5-by-continent version. Does it look right? I know we must've made many mistakes. Using all speakers.
and a native speaker-only quiz sounds nice. I'll take a shortcut for that one and wait for you to make the rest :D

Yeah I'm not sure about the source for this one tbh. It claims first and second speakers, but the numbers seem way too low. I find t hard to believe that only 58 million people can speak English as a first or second language.

That is true, about English speakers. and looks good? Great, but I know someone will correct my numbers or languages. I love feedback especially if its helpful, but I'd rather have it before I actually submit the quiz so I know it's right. Anyone else, feel free to critique.. :)

Very odd fact: we just added the numbers up on "Countries by English speaking population" and got... 260 million!! Check yourself if you want to. These definitely look like native speakers, so I'll need to fix all of my Europe

Don't forget this is native speakers only. Not everyone in France is a native speaker. And the populations of the rest of those countries is quite small. Also only 65 million live in Metropolitan France.

You have the number of people speaking Dutch at 21,900 million. As you say that the quiz only accounts for native speakers of a language and the population of the Netherlands is 17 million, almost half of Belgium must then be native Dutch speakers? (Pop. of Belgium is 11 million). Are you considering Flemish as Dutch?

Flemish is the same as Dutch, just with a different accent and a few different words for some things. It's like the difference between UK English and US English.

Yes, Dutch is an official language of Belgium (often referred to as Flemish) and is native for 60% of the population.
