World's most natively spoken languages.

Also of note: English has the greatest number of learners: 1.5bn, followed by a very distant French at 82mn.

While Chinese dominates as the most natively spoken macrolanguage at ~1.2bn, English is still some ways ahead in native + learning at ~1.8bn.

Curiously, there are more people learning English than there are native Chinese speakers (~1.5bn vs ~1.2bn).
