Given that the USA is one country from sea to shining sea, and Europe is a multitude of countries border to
border, it would make sense that Europeans would speak more than one. But that does not make us inferior. It
just makes us a nation of one language. Although I only speak english, many Americans speak more than one
language (Spanish, or variation, being the most popular). As for accents, most of us don't have a problem,
although we might ask one to repeat themselves once in a while, after a short time our ears become accustom to
the accent and then have no difficulty understanding .
