Do people find others who speak several languages 'weird'?
I'm American, but I've lived overseas in various countries. Most everyone overseas speaks 2, 3, or even more languages. I speak 5 languages myself (French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, and German). When I'm back in the U.S. I feel like some sort of freak. When people aren't forcing me to prove that I can speak that many languages fluently, they're telling me how 'weird' it is. I even had one lady say, "You're American. What the hell do you need to know so many languages for? Speak English!"
