Most Popular Second Languages in the World

MoveHub, a company that helps people relocate abroad, created an interesting map showing the most popular second language in nearly every country in the world. Unsurprisingly English comes out on top. French and Russian come second and third respectively.

The map also reflects the impacts from colonization, imperialism and immigration trends (see Spanish in the United States, French in Canada, Polish in the United Kingdom and Mandarin in Australia).
