The Most Spoken Languages in The World

Published

on

Language is the most important thing in modern human civilization. Imagine if we lived without language, and relied on ancient symbols like civilizations of the past.

Undoubtedly, language plays a very important role in interacting. The rapid development of languages ​​has recorded world histories we have learned since colleges, such as Greek, Sanskrit, and Greek.

Below is the list of the five most popular in the world.

1. Chinese

Chinese or Mandarin is the most difficult language to learn in the world. In China, there have 2 Chinese languages, Mandarin and Cantonese, but the more commonly used is Mandarin.

The difficulty in learning Chinese lies in the tone of the pronunciation and intonation of each word. The tone of tone contained in the Mandarin language is divided into 5 parts, namely:

  • First Note – high pitch intonation. (b? meaning eight)
  • Second Note – tone of pitch rises or rises (meaning to pull out).
  • Third Note – tone intonation decreases then rises (b? Meaning to hold).
  •  Fourth Note – decreased tone of tone (bà meaning father).
  • Neutral Note – flat tone (meaning usually used at the end of a sentence).

Another difficulty is that there are around 80,000 characters and you must master at least 3000-3500 words to be able to have a normal conversation with other people. For comparison, to be able to read 1 newspaper in Mandarin you need at least 3000 words.

2. Arabic 

Arabic is one of the difficult languages ​​because there are various kinds of Arabic dialects. There are at least 13 grammars in Arabic that are used every day in general conversation. If we write words on a piece of paper starting from left to right, then Arabic writing starts from right to left, of course, you have to get used to writing the inverted sentence.

Arabic also has a plural consonant, for example, if in English you want to say something has more than 1, you will add the letter “S” at the end of words such as Student to Students. But in Arabic student = Talib, while students = tulab.

3. Learning Japanese  

The Japanese language has 3 characters that are usually used, namely Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. Kanji is a word character that has similarities to Chinese if you need at least 3000 Chinese words, in your kanji only requires at least 2000 words.

While Hiragana and Katakana, there are 46 characters so that the total becomes 96 and if added with the pronunciation of the tone becomes 102. If in each language sometimes has a tone of tone, then Japan does not have a special tone of tone, it’s just that the pronunciation of each word sometimes has its own intonation related to feelings.

Japanese has their own conveniences, if usually when we ask someone something we will use the subject and object then in Japanese you can leave the word. Example: “Have you eaten?”, Whereas in Japanese only need to say the word “tabeta?” (meaning: eating?) to the person being asked.

4. Korean 

Although classified as one of the most difficult foreign languages ​​in the world, it turns out that Korean has a consonant of words that are easy to learn. Korean also has different pronunciation of words to show respect to someone who is older. Usually, the word of honor is shown at the beginning of a conversation and at the end of a sentence.

5. Greek 

Greek has a language that shows its own gender characteristics such as for women, men, and neutral. So that the pronunciation at the end of a sentence shows directly to who we are talking to, the verb pronunciation is also influenced by people, moods, numbers, and circumstances.

Mercedes Unveils Electric Compact SUV In Attempt To Outdo Tesla

Published

on

By

As part of plans to take on rival Tesla Inc and sell more emission-free vehicles to customers to reach goals in Europe and China, Daimler AG’s Mercedes-Benz unveiled on Wednesday the EQA, a new electric compact SUV.

The EQA will initially have a range of 426 kilometers (265 miles), with a 500km model coming later, the luxury brand carmaker said in a video presentation, the first of many electric vehicles Mercedes-Benz expects to introduce this year.

On Feb 4, the SUV will go on sale in Europe at what Britta Seeger’s board of management described as “very attractive price points.”

Last year, sales of electric vehicles (EV) took off in Europe as carmakers struggled to meet the CO2 emissions quotas of the European Union. In particular, revenues got a boost from subsidies included in the economic stimulus initiatives carried out in France and Germany.

During the first three quarters of 2020, sales of fully electric and plug-in hybrid models grew 122 percent across the EU.

The EQA is identified by Mercedes-Benz as an “urban entry model” and its “sustainability, versatility and fresh look” was touted by board member Seeger.

With its large investments in fossil-fuel cars, electric carmaker Tesla has made a head start on traditional carmakers and has dominated global sales. The mass-market Tesla Model 3 is the world’s best-selling EV, led by Renault’s Zoe in distant second place.

As well as pollution quotas, in some markets, carmakers face bans on fossil-fuel vehicles that are effective as early as 2030.
