Believe it or not, English is not at the first position, but, it closely follows Mandarin to acquire the 2nd position. It is spoken by more than 430 million people around the world, and is another one of the six official languages of the UN. Derived from an Indo-European family of languages, this Germanic language is the global lingua franca. Unlike Mandarin, which is mainly spoken in a particular geographical region, English is the first language in many countries throughout the world across all the continents, and is spoken by almost a billion people as a second language.
