OK, so presumably wherever you live a certain language is most commonly spoken, right?

Question for you.

What do you think is the *second* most commonly spoken language in your area?

Feel free to explain as much as you like. "Area" is also open to wide interpretation, whatever feels comfortable.


@noyovo I live in Brussels, so this is a hard one! French is first, but following it are Dutch, English, and Arabic, with wildly different ratios depending on where you are!

I *think* for the city as a whole Arabic is probably #2, but I'm not totally sure – and for political reasons, it's illegal to perform a linguistic census. (!)
