"the seventy-seven languages"

Here is the quote from Sholem Aleichem: “It would see to it that all Jews sit in yeshivas and study the Bible, the Talmud, the Gemorah, and the various Commentaries and learn all the seven wisdoms and the seventy-seven languages.”

What are these 77 languages? Can anyone point me to a list that Sholem Aleichem might have been referencing?
