let iterator = languages.entries();

for (let entry of iterator) {
  console.log(entry);
}
Output of JavaScript Array entries() Method Example
const array1 = ['a', 'b', 'c'];

const iterator1 = array1.entries();

console.log(iterator1.next().value);
// expected output: Array [0, "a"]

console.log(iterator1.next().value);
// expected output: Array [1, "b"]
const a = ['a', 'b', 'c'];

for (const [index, element] of a.entries())
  console.log(index, element);

// 0 'a'
// 1 'b'
// 2 'c'
var a = ['a', 'b', 'c'];
var iterator = a.entries();

for (let e of iterator) {
  console.log(e);
}
