Language is one way that humans communicate with each other. There are about 7,000 languages in the world. Half of them don't have a writing system. The most spoken language is Chinese, then comes English, Spanish, Hindi, and Portuguese.

Sometimes animals have a language of their own sort and they communicate to each other.
