This is hard!

http://greatlanguagegame.com/

I played a few rounds and my BEST score was 400 - which means I got (guessed, mostly) 8 right before missing 3.

How did you do on it?

@boomerang,
That was cool but very hard, I got 450 a few times..mostly 400.

I find Turkish the hardest to detect along with African and/or Indian languages like Urdu, Swahili...etc.

@Ragman,
Differentiating between the Asian languages stumped me every single time.

I got 350, mostly on accent based guessing.

@boomerang,
Yep, and I've traveled a lot.

@timur,
I think having traveled is important to doing well on this game.

One one round that I took three of the answers were "Lao". You'd think I would have only missed it once and recognized it when it was played again but they use different voices saying different things and, for me, it didn't even register as the same language.

@boomerang,
Most of the speeches in this game have the name of the country they are from in them.

They are, however, difficult to recognize.

The Khmer, for example, talk about Cambodia.

You are right that changing the voice from woman to man often changes the perception we have of the language.
