In quite a few countries other than America (such as in Europe and Asia, etc.), knowing two or even three languages fluently is commonplace.

The first time we went to Europe, in 1971, we met educated European travellers who spoke multiple languages. On more recent trips most people we met spoke only their own language and English. There is no longer much reason for Germans to speak French or Italian, or for Frenchmen to speak German and Spanish when such a large percentage of everybody with an education speaks English.
