A US Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included 20 Admirals from the US, English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies.
At a reception, he found himself standing with a huge group of officers that included personnel from most of the countries.
Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks, but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked:

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied:
"Maybe it's because the Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German".
You could've heard a pin drop...
