ncient languages that were once spoken and familiar around the world would have almost disappeared if it wasn’t for historians and experts working on learning these complex languages. We are lucky to live in an era with high-performance technology that helps us not only understand these ancient languages but create audio files of what the languages sounded like during the time when they were commonly spoken.

Modern languages are straightforward compared to ancient languages, thus why it is so difficult to understand them and even more difficult to speak them correctly as our ancestors intended. Such intentions are involuntary, as with the evolution of humankind, we seem to tend towards simplifying our language.

This trend is very much observed today, with each generation shortening its language through the use of phrases or acronyms. Without further due, here are what some of the most popular ancient languages sounded like.
