Talk to me!

EDL logo Today is the “European Day of Languages” – and there are many languages. Could you assign all the languages to the countries they are officially used in? Even if it’s just a short sentence (see below) each? There’s a game (optionally in presentation mode) at the Council of Europe’s website where you can assign “Talk to me!” in 39 languages to their respective country or countries. (I admit, though, it was a bit too tedious for me, I didn’t play it completely.)

Update 2008: Added language names.

    They got Armenian wrong. It’s supposed to be խոսիր not խոմիր.

      Thanks, I changed it.
      (Seems to be a slightly different font/character set, at least what I’m seeing on the iPad now…)
