How many languages do you know, other than your mother tongue?Perhaps only in the remote villages of India, do the uneducated people know only one language, their mother tongue. Otherwise, in cities, generally, the people know more than one language. Also, in addition to the languages formally taught in the schools, people learn other languages on their own.
Generally, the urban educated persons know three languages i.e. their own mother tongue, English and Hindi in the non-Hindi speaking regions and at least two languages i.e. Hindi and English in the Hindi speaking regions.
I belong to the Hindi belt and therefore know Hindi and English but can understand other languages like Urdu, Punjabi, Marathi and partially Gujarati and Bengali also.
