Ever wanted to learn a language? The folk at language travel specialists ESL have put together a list of 50 of the world’s weirdest languages, most of which are probably best avoided.
Discover languages on the verge of extinction – Njerep has only four living speakers, Kaixana only one. Explore curios like Yupik, where every word is a complex sentence, Taa, which some argue has more than 100 click sounds in its armoury of consonants, or Archi, which many linguists believe offers more than 1,500,000 possible forms for every single verb. Or wrap your head around invented languages like Klingon, Aklo, Furbish, Sindarin and Dothraki.
Or, of course, you could opt for a stint overseas learning something more useful, like Spanish or (if you’re brave!) Chinese. Enjoy!
