Top 10 Languages by Continent of Origin

Can you guess the 10 largest languages by total number of speakers (native and second language) of each of the 6 inhabited continents? Antarctica excluded for obvious reasons.
Creoles and pidgins are excluded. Isolates are included.
Number of speakers include speakers outside the continent, ie languages are categorised only *by* continent of origin rather than *within*.
Keep in mind that the distinctions between languages and dialects are extremely fuzzy and ultimately arbitrary, as is the distinction between continents.
