Visible to anyone in the world

This is an intriguing quiz on Open Learn.


I got all parts correct apart from one although a few were guesses.

I was helped by having studied Chinese - so got that one right.  I also did Russian as half of my degree and knew that Bulgarian uses Cyrillic script (but suspect Macedonian does as well) so guessed Bulgarian.  I have been to Bulgaria and people seem to understand me if I speak Russian and I can recognise words in Bulgarian but I do not usually understand spoken Bulgarian.  I got the question about Arabic right but I could have chosen another language.  I got one wrong near the end.
