French Guiana (or even just France) for South America? Or would that open a wormhole of "countries with land in different continents" so Spain would work for Africa, Turkish would be official in both Europe and Asia, Russia would work for Asia, French Polynesia in Oceania, etc.?

Please grey out or put an X in the boxes where there isn't a country on that continent speaking the language, I wasted SO much time trying to think of answers that didn't actually exist!

Very cool!! And a big braintwister, especially with the time given you get nervous and cant think properly, like which countries speak portuguese and try to remember them all, no, only the obvious one come to mind and they come to mind from all the different languages at once haha.

This was fun! ( can I lie down now...) I only missed east timor, and the greek (tricky!)

Funny how russia is guess 85% while the language is only at 74% ( guess people thought they had allready typed it)

A nice little overview of statistics. The % guessed of a language and the highest guessed% of where it is spoken:

english: 100% and 84% (uk at 83%)

spanish: 98% and 77% (spain)

french: 98% and 82% (france at 74%)

portuguese: 91% and 80% (portugal at 75%)

arabic: 91% and 81% (saudi arabia at 78%)

dutch: 82% and 71% (netherlands)

russian: 75% and 85% (russia)

greek: 46% and 43% (greece)

Quite some gaps between the languages and the first guessed country in that language (and Russia having it the other way around) (A lot of times people could name a language, but in 10-15% of the time they couldnt think of a country where that language was spoken. I know, that isnt exactly the right way to interpreted it, still you get the idea)

Forgot Turkish Definitely as Turkey is literally, itself, on two Continents lol and Arguably Georgian and Kazakh depending on how you define Europe/Asia. The Same argument as the previous two could possibly be made of Indonesian in Asia too.
