Only one really. I did French at school and could brush it up I guess.
In most parts of the world ordinary people speak a few languages.
In Dakar I spent a day with a man who spoke seven, I think.....3 African ones, French (colonial language), Spanish, English and maybe Catalan or was it German. This is just someone on the streets who hangs around outside the hotels looking for tourists.
