Place Notes:  Places include all the countries and territories of the world, as well as, other travel destinations and areas you might have heard about. The fact that we list a place does not mean we are making a political statement.  We just want to help people learn about their languages and to get travel information. We do not have a business relationship with any sites we link to.  They are listed because we believe you will find them useful. When you click on a link,  it opens a new browser window for that site. 

The common name for a place is used instead of the official name because that is the one you will most likely know.  If a place has changed its name in the last 20-30 years,  you can search by the former name.  Also, some places consist of a combined name or are commonly known by two different names. You can search by either name.
If there are problems with a page or you have ideas for additional links, please send an email to the Webmaster using our Feedback form. Thanks!

All good work is noble.

We love and respect all the people and languages of the world.  Any errors are unintentional and will be corrected as soon as we find out about them. We are all on this spaceship together!
