Wikipedia and Wikibooks Links to Languages

There are thousands of languages living on Earth. It will be quite some time until I am able to list all of these here! However, I am adding this page in case people are interested in finding out more information about some of the world's more widely-spoken languages, and are not yet aware of the wonders of Wikipedia.

For each language listed below, there are either two or three links.

- The first link is to the Wikipedia page in English about the language.
- The second is a link to the Wikipedia home page for content in the language (e.g., all the existing content written in the language itself).
- The third is a link to the Wikibook in English about the language.

If you are interested specifically in how to learn a language, have a look at How to Learn a Language. If you want to see all the language resources available on Wikibooks, check out the Wikibooks Languages Bookshelf. And quickly, for those who might be interested, navigate over to the Wikipedia List of Languages!

I hope this page feeds Free Language users' understanding of languages, as well as spreading the word about Wikipedia and Wikibooks, as well as Wikimedia in general.

These links will eventually be sorted into the language-learning resources for all languages on the site.
