How Are World Languages Related?

You probably know that French, Spanish, and Italian are ‘siblings’; all three developed from the Latin used throughout the Roman Empire. You may be less aware of the relationship of English to German, Dutch, and several Scandinavian languages. Eurotalk, a developer of software for language learning, has created this image to illustrate the ‘language forest’ to show the relationships among many of the 6000+ languages in the world.
