An officer in the U.S. Naval reserve was attending a conference that
included admirals from both the U.S. Navy and the French navy. At a
cocktail reception, he found himself in a small group that included
personnel from both navies. The French admiral started complaining that
whereas Europeans learned many languages, Americans learned only English.

He then asked: "Why is it that we have to speak English in these
conferences rather than you speak French?"

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied: "Maybe it's because we
arranged it so you did not have to speak German."
