Asia is characterised by mountains, islands, and jungles, which has allowed communities to isolate and develop languages without external influences. In Europe, most people speak the Indo-European languages, which include Slavic, Romance, and Germanic languages. In Asia, the language spectrum is much wider and includes Indo-European, Sino-Tibetan, Dravidian, and Altaic languages.
In Indonesia alone, there is reported to be more than 700 different native languages.
