American Joke

close button

It goes like this…
What do you call a person who knows 3 languages?
-Trilingual
What do you call a person who knows 2 languages?
-Bilingual
What do you call a person who only speaks 1 language?
-hmm, American?

We are not sure if this joke reflects the truth as more than 30 million Americans speak another language besides English at home and the USA is home to the world’s most advanced linguistic academies and the most famous scholars like Chomsky.
