I'm not really surprised at the numbers, everywhere I have travelled in Europe people seem to have a great grasp of English, even to slang sayings etc. They all have my utter admiration in their abilities. I know a little German (mostly about food I might add) and my schoolboy French. ....... gosh I'm jealous.

I believe 70% of Germans studied English at some point in school. Do 70% of Germans really speak English though...?
