Great Language Game

of light and shadows

Amongst the thousands of languages spoken across the world, here are just eighty. How many can you distinguish between?


About the game
Languages
There are perhaps six or seven thousand languages in the world. Even so-called hyperpolyglots, people who learn to speak six or more fluently, barely scratch the surface. You and I will never be able to communicate in all these languages without machine aids, but learning to identify what's being spoken near us, that's within our reach. This is the challenge the game provides.

Audio sources
Initial samples were sourced from SBS Australia, reflecting Australia's rich migrant culture. Since then they've been supplemented from Voice of America, and linguistic samples collected to preserve languages. Many are common to international cities throughout the world – they might even be spoken in a neighbourhood near you. Others remind us how vast and varied the world truly is.
