Ken,

I love this kind of stuff! Without looking up a reference and cheating, I am going to guess on some of these smaller, more obscure countries and their languages: I think Yemen-being a Middle Eastern country might be Arabic.

Sao Tome and Principe, though I am not familiar with this nation (but would guess that it is an island or group of islands), sounds by the very name to be Portuguese-the 'Sao' was the give away :-)

I have heard of the tiny European nation of Liechtenstein and from its location in Western Europe and the 'stein' portion of the name, I would guess that German is spoken there. However, English is the lingua franca throughout most of Europe now, so I would deduce that Liechtenstein probably has duo official languages of English and German.

Now, we are getting to the tougher parts :-)

Both Anguilla and Guadalupe sound very Spanish to me. However, Spanish is not on your list of choices. I would then defer to either Portuguese or French-as they are also Romance languages, sharing the same Latin origins as Spanish and Italian.

So, Ken-how did I do?
