Which is the best for this phrase?

"Tho there are more than 50 language in my country, JUST/ONLY one is official."

I think it's ONLY, but I'm not 100% sure.

thanks-

    Either word works; they both convey the exact same thing. Neither sounds more awkward than the other, in my opinion.

    Edit: Actually, I think "only" sounds better in this sentence, but like I said, there's nothing wrong with "just".

    I wouldn't object to either option, but I think "only" conveys the meaning more clearly. If this is something to be expressed in writing, I recommend you to use "though" or "although", which are the correctly spelt forms.
    EDIT: Sorry Dave, we must have posted at about the same time, but I'm glad to see you agree mostly.
    EDIT EDIT: And we both edited at the same time too!
