Twenty Tongues

One of the things I enjoy most about living in London is the multi-culturalism. I like the fact that you can meet people from absolutely anywhere in the world and can go a whole day and not even hear any English spoken.

Sure, there are those who bemoan the influx of foreigners and immigrants to London, but I for one welcome the diversity and variety they bring to our fair city, especially as I think the English can do with a little livening up sometimes ( I should point out that I am English myself, so I can sort of get away with saying that )

Over 250 languages are spoken in England's capital, making it the most culturally diverse city in the world. I have displayed the twenty most popular spoken "tongues" below.
