Top Bolivia


Bolivia has three official languages: Spanish, Quechua and Aymara. Spanish is spoken by roughly 3.5 million Bolivians, followed by Quechua (roughly 3 million) and Aymara (almost 2 million). Quechua is spoken in south-central Bolivia, and Aymara in the west. Spanish is spoken all over. Bolivia is home to numerous unofficial languages, including Guaraní, spoken by roughly 30,000 Bolivians, and the nearly extinct Baure language, spoken by approximately 13 Bolivians (yes, you read that right, 13) in a remote corner of Beni province. There are many other languages in between. Some linguists believe there may be as many as 39 different languages in Bolivia.
