I find amazing to understand many languages as a European living in Corsica. When you can think in another tongue you discover something incredible because you enter in another mind,in another way of thinking,not a best one or a worste one but a different one. In USA you seems to forget your roots from Europe and elsewhere and it is perhaps a bad thing ! Peccatto ,Es una pena,Schade,it's a pity,quel dommage ,Sajnálom........... Without an another language you don't have a link with others and don't see others !

most people in Europe have English as a second language, same goes for Canada with English/French. The US may not officially be a bilingual country, but many have English and Spanish. Being bilingual just makes you smarter

Doesn't surprise me with Foster. She is quite smart. "Foster graduated as valedictorian from the French-speaking Lycee Francais de Los Angeles, after which she attended Yale and graduated magna cum laude with a degree in literature. Her reported IQ is 132." http://listverse.com/2009/01/18/15-surprisingly-super-smart-celebrities/
