2. Many languages are spoken in Trinidad and Tobago

Since Trinidad and Tobago is a cosmopolitan nation, many languages are spoken. The country has a population of just under 1.3 million people, and the capital city is Port of Spain.

Even the English variety consists of words and sentences from other languages including African, Hindi, Spanish, French, German, and Latin. Compared to other Caribbean countries, the English variety is very understandable.

Trinidad and Tobago is located just off the coast of Venezuela so Spanish is widely spoken too. Also, there are many Asian residents so you hear a lot of Mandarin, Japanese and Mandarin Taiwan.
