If you’re a nerd for these kinds of challenges, this probably won’t be the first guess the language quiz you’ve ever taken. But it might just be one of the most challenging.

Earlier this year, we challenged you to correctly identify the language based on how it looks. We made it especially hard by making you choose one of three languages that are somewhat linguistically or geographically related to each other, or at least easy to mix up from a foreigner’s perspective.

We took a similar approach with this quiz, except we included YouTube clips so you can test your auditory recognition skills.

Think you can ace this quiz? We wish you luck.

Now, get ready to speak a new language yourself.
