I grew up and lived in five different countries in Europe and came to the US as an adult. I am fluent in 5 languages, rusty in one and keep learning. Over the years, every pet I had understood at least two languages, since it’s the reality for anyone living in my family. My four kids are fluent in at least three languages.
