They do speak English...sort of.

Seriously, though: in the North, a lot of people speak passable English, especially in Milan. The rest of the country is very lacking in English speakers...it never bothered me, though; it's just another chance to practice mi italiano that's non troppo bene to say the least.

French, Italian, and German.
-The French speak English (though with a really bad accent) but don't like to do so
-Italian: no idea
-Germans: learn English just like we do
That had been my impression as well
No, no. He means they were speaking german and french and italian.
This means... Switzerland.

Now you can find in Switzerland people that do not speak english. Rarely. This is those that chose to learn two national languages plus latin plus classical greek. All others (say 99%) have had english at school, but because english is the third language (or fourth) at school, many people had only 3 years of english, and this could may them shy to speak; this changed in the last decade with usually early start with english (as 3rd language) and about 5 years of class.
Of course, anybody remotely connected to tourism will be sufficiently fluent as long as there is no scottish or texan accent ;)

But if you need people speaking most european languages - the party must be in Switzerland, obviously. Start saving to pay your train fare (don't even think you can afford a taxi) and look forward to a coffee for >5SFr :o

We learn as many in Belgium :P three at the very least, up to five not counting Latin and Greek (then it's up to 7), and we start French at 10 and English at 13.
