Most Europeans are taught from a very young age to learn/speak 2-3 languages. At a young age, the human brain is much more absorbent to learning new information. Both French and Spanish are quite similar in word meaning/structure/conjugation and are easily learned together. Of the three, English is one of the hardest languages for any individual to learn.
Most Europeans are bilingual because the job market in the region is very competitive and bilingualism has been seen to improve employment and business opportunities. Learning and mastering French is somewhat more difficult than Spanish and not everyone has the enthusiasm to do what it takes. Also, not too many people use French as their first language in the United States as compared to those who use Spanish.
