Of course there are Americans who speak a full language, but the education system in places like Alabama brings the average down quite a bit.

There even are places where English completely disappears.
Why, in America, they haven't spoken it for years!

Ironically, in second place is the guy who never speaks.

I don't think the survey counts first languages. Hence the low US numbers.

I'm doing my part to raise those figures though; Spanish, Swedish, Russian, and working on Mandarin.

as an american, can confirm XP

since americans have to pay for education and i cant afford it, im teaching myself japanese using things like memrise.com and the Genki workbooks; its slow-going having no guidance but i know at least a little bit of it, so i can tentatively claim i know 1 language after adding everything up XDD

Given i live in the USA and work retail I have some languages i can't even understand coming through the store that do not sound like anything that remotely sounds like a known language. Some people here seem to speak soly in grunts, screams, and swears.

I have a friend that can speak 4 languages. I love to joke around and told her I could speak two languages. "English and Bad English." I honestly thought she was gonna kill me.

That's impossible. Amerika has at least English, Spanish, Mandarin, Italian, Gaelic and whatnot....it should be on top of this list.

Iceland, 1,9? I thought Icelanders practised Icelandic, English and even Danish in school, so what's up with 1,9? Any Icelanders care to explain.

It's so sad because we have no one to talk to other than the other students stumbling around German.

Therefore:
Ich habe Deutsche vergessen.
At least I've been told my pronunciation is good in German as well as my Hawai'ian.
