In quite a few countries other than America (such as in Europe and Asia, etc.), knowing two or even three languages fluently is commonplace. Americans are relatively backward in that regard, I'll admit.

We are not backward in that regard, its a product of geography and original colonies. In Europe, you cross a border you have a different language. Here, you cross a state line, you might get a different accent.
