I think this is a good source for learning several languages at one time. Seriously, you can look at the word "sugar", for example.

There are English, French, German, Spanish, Portguese, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish (mmm, difficult), Russian (this is very difficult), Greek (very difficult), Polish (difficult), Chech (difficult), Arabic (you’ll need at least 30 days to learn the letters), Japanese (my native tongue so no problem for me), and Chinese (the characters are the same so I can guess to some extent).

In this picture, there are Norwegian (blurred), Danish, Finnish, Russian, Greek, Polish, Chech, Arabic, Japanese, and Chinese (blurred).

  1. I see the inscription on Russian! "Очищенный сахарный сироп, белки, углеводы"… (Refined sugar syrup, squirrels, carbohydrates)

  2. Eestlane_lirimaal: Thank you for the invite. Very interesting concept the group has. :)) This Cadbury package shows how languages and economy go together. Cadbury is a global chocolate manufacturer who exports worldwide, so they need to put various languages on the package.
