Fact of the Day: Bolivian Languages

The nation of Bolivia in South America has many official languages. It includes Spanish, and more than 35 native languages.

  1. The 35 native languages would be dialects.
    In Papua New Guinea there are 850 native dialects, the
    official languages are English, Tok Pisen and Motu (Papuan side).
    I worked for 6 years in the then Territory of PNG in the 1960's before
    the country gained independence.
    For the interested Texan, "DJ", I am now retired.
    And I have been also to the state of Texas, USA.

  7. I don't know much about Bolivia, but there are quite a few people moving to and fro Brazil in this area. The young kids pick up Portugese. It's neat to hear them chat with each other.
