There are 23 officially recognised languages within the European Union while there are more than 60 indigenous regional and minority languages.

Follow up:

54 percent of Europeans are able to have a conversation in one additional language while 25 percent can converse in two.

While Europeans overwhelmingly consider English the most useful foreign language to learn, what comes second? Unsurprisingly, Russian is dominant in Finland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. German is very well represented, considered the most most useful second language by people in no fewer than eleven countries.

This chart shows the second foreign language people consider the most useful for personal development.
