Rarest Languages Still Spoken In The World

When we think of languages, we think of the most widely spoken: English, Spanish, French, German, Chinese and maybe others such as Arabic, Japanese and Russian, and even Latin. There are about 6,500 languages spoken across the globe, but sadly the lesser known languages are in the danger of becoming extinct.

There are several reasons why certain languages are dying: natural disasters, war, genocide, colonial suppression, and many others. There are programs around the world whose intention is to preserve and save these dying languages — because the death of these languages will inevitably lead to the death of their culture.

There are about at least hundred languages at risk of dying out, but we will list only a few here in this gallery.
