Few mistakes: about 50% of the people in South-America speak Portuguese (425 million ppl in the Whole of Latin America, 195 million ppl in Brasil).

In Europe, French topes Turkish, Italian and English (you have to count in a part of Belgium and a part of Switzerland).

Turkish isn’t even Europe, that would be Middle-East.

Spain topes Poland with about 40 to 30 million ppl.
