I can only vouch for the Americas. -- I'm fluent in English and Spanish. And though we love to joke that only Americans speak one language, I know that in Central and South America, though the ideal is to speak at least another business language, the reality is that most only speak their native language.

I know, vaguely, about the fact that most Europeans grow up speaking at least two languages. I assume that the details are complex, and aside from geographical factors, I am curious to hear if the education system in place is the cause behind a person's fluency in two languages or more.

And how do Asia and Africa (and the rest of the world) compare?

Any input will be appreciated.
