As someone fascinated with learning languages and traveling, a global village is a very appealing concept. This is partly identified by Concordia Language Villages, a program for high school students to live in an intensive language environment in the United States, which I attended. Someone has compiled statistics about the world and presented them in the form of a global village containing just 100 people. All the percentages stay the same, but the numbers say a lot more on a smaller scale. You can see studies like this here, here, here, or here.
