Summary: BABEL takes you to the 20 mightiest languages of our time. Half of the world population are native speakers of one of these 20. Well over three quarters can speak at least one of them. And just over 90% live in countries where one of them is used by central government.

BABEL explores them all, from French to Japanese, from Spanish to Swahili and from Arabic to Tamil. It casts a surprising light on our neighbours and acquaintances, while introducing you to far-flung strangers that are well worth the journey. (Gaston Dorren’s website)
