See and hear Kobe Bryant speaking Italian, Jodi Foster speaking French,
Beckham speaking Spanish,  Donna Summer speaking German,  and  many
others!  This  is  a  testament  to  the ever-growing
importance, need and  
coolness  of knowing  more  than  just one language in today's world.

May their language ability inspire you to learn
an additional language too!

English-speaking celebrities who are also FLUENT in other languages - No available online video footage (yet)
So,   which  celebrities  REALLY speak  more  than  just  English  FLUENTLY,  and  are  
therefore  considered BILINGUAL or MULTILINGUAL?
 You might be surprised to find
out  that  many  more  than  you  thought  do.   At  the  same  time,   you  might  also  be
disappointed  to  discover  that  many  online  claims  of  celebrities  who speak  another
language are simply false or exaggerated.  Simply repeating a few words or phrases in a
foreign  language  is  not evidence of being  a  fluent speaker  of that language.
.
.
.
Available researched evidence & reports show the
following celebrities to be monolinguals, contrary to
common assertion & exaggerated reports on the web
of them speaking other languages fluently.  

Angelina Jolie
Alfonso Ribeiro
Barack Obama
Bill Clinton
Chelsea Clinton
Christian Bale
Christina Aguilera
David Hasselhoff
Dionne Warwick
Emma Watson

Jonas Brothers
Justin Bieber
Keanu Reeves
Kelly Clarkson
Leonardo DiCaprio
Miley Syrus
Oprah Winfrey

Monolingual Celebrities we'd like to see learning another language, to fluency -  Lets campaign to make this happen
Verification obtained through well-researched reliable sources & reports
Merriam-Webster defines "FLUENT" as: the ability to speak  a language easily, smoothly and very well.
Here are a few things you and I can do, and that I
have already been working on:
American Celebrities FLUENT ENOUGH to Act in Foreign-Language Films and/or Commercials
■  Create & post YouTube video pleas addressed to them
■  Write to them through their official websites
■  Write letters about this to CNN, CBS, NBC, FOX, etc.
 Contact me HERE with your ideas, progress and to help
WORK IN PROGRESS - Share with others, and Check back often!
► The number of celebrities who speak more than just one language is huge, and still GROWING!
Just imagine Oprah's POWER, and Justin Bieber's Popularity, in support of Foreign Language Education!!
WHY SHOULD YOU LEARN TO SPEAK MORE THAN JUST ONE LANGUAGE?  CONSIDER. . .
In his latest book, David Crystal, one of the worlds foremost experts on  the subject of language, points
out that  
"...multilingualism is the normal human condition.  It is a principle which often takes people by
surprise.  If  you  have  lived  your  whole  life  in  a  monolingual  environment,  you could easily come to
believe  that  this  is the regular way of life around the world, and that people who speak more than one
language  are  the exceptions.  Exactly the reverse is the case.
Speaking two or more languages is the
natural way of life for three-quarters of the human race.
