This is a great quiz from the folks over at Quartz. One of my favorite parts about living in a big city and traveling to other cities is trying to guess what language the people around you are speaking. Now I can hone my skills.
The most difficult part for me is being able to distinguish between the families of languages in Asia. That said, I (Jeremy) was able to swing a 5 out of 8. How do you think you'll do?
A bit more about the quiz:
Languages are as diverse as the people who speak them. But to foreign ears, they can be hard to tell apart.
Quartz has already tested your ear for accents. The quiz above does the same for languages using audio clips from the Wikitongues project, which aims to collect videos of native speakers in all of the world’s tongues.
