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.

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.

Well if you finish school in Lithuania you must have learned total of 3 languages. Though language is tricky thing. Like we have two regions with their dialects so different that anyone using only Common Lithuanian cant understand them. So while officially same language, in reality totally different.

hOw... how do you even speak less than a full language as an adult person in a more or less civilized country? This is a great mystery to me.

PS: Where'd you get those stats from? I'd love to take a look at your source and find my country's language average in there.

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.

I think the South has it's own language. Regular English is rarely heard down there. The people all tend to speak with heavy Southern dialect that's almost impossible to translate unless you're also from the South. I'm from Missouri, St. Louis area, and have issues just going to Potosi, a boonie town about 50 miles south of St. Louis. They have a place called "The Christmas Shop" that sells incense and various types of tobacco, as well as...items used for smoking other things. It's ran by a group of women all over 70.

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
