Recently I had a speech at our local Toastmaster's Club about the Indo-European languages. I overestimated my audience since I thought that people know about Indo-European languages everywhere in the world or at least in the countries of European ancestry. My audience had no clue not only about Indo-European languages but also about how different European languages are interrelated. No, wonder, we live in homogenous America, not in multinational Europe. People here are not exposed to foreign languages like Europeans do.
