Didn't expect Mexico to be on here. Must be the people who speak indigenous languages or know English.

Not necessarily the indigenous languages portion. Almost all of that number comes from English/Spanish bilinguals.

Fascinating! How about a version of the same quiz with the same answers, but also asking you to name the languages?

I don't know how the numbers are collated, but I know from experience that most German, Scandinavian, Swiss, Austrian people can speak English very well.
