Did You Know: Languages

How many spoken languages are there on Earth? Dozens? Hundreds? The answer might surprise you!
And the tongue, as an organ, doesn`t just taste or articulate sounds. For instance, do you know what a Tibetan means when he sticks his tongue out at someone? You better find out before you meet one!

And more surprising still, did you know that there exists an animal capable of washing its ears with its tongue? Do not try it at home, as it might be painful… What animal is it? Well, you can`t really miss it…

But let`s come back to the lovely French language: do you know how many ways the “O” sound can be spelled in French? Your fingers won`t be enough!
