      The problem with speaking all the languages but the one you're in is that you won't be able to ask anyone local where a bathroom is or where a good cheeseburger joint can be found. Or if you're lost, how to get the hell out of there.

      I'm currently in the USA. Therefore, I would not be able to speak American English. But I could speak every other language of every country in the world, such as the United Kingdoms of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (like saying that) and Australia. I can speak English along with every language in the world.

      Color and colour are the exact same word and same pronunciation, and both are considered correct in both america and england. It's the same language, but American English is more flexible and less defined, so I could technically speak any language.

      If you move to Japan, you would suddenly not know Japanese though. The choice was "Speak every language except for the country you are CURRENTLY in." That means moving to Japan would make you suck at Japanese.

    Just move to Switzerland. The spoken languages there are so far removed from the original languages that they count as their own. And everyone still understands the original languages (like, a German wouldn't understand a Swiss person from the German part of Switzerland, but they'd be perfectly able to understand and even speak German as it's spoken in Germany).
