    You need to have a good command of several languages. There is no official number, but 2 is not enough, I would say about 5 or 6. Just so you know, polyglot is a very very formal technical word. I've spoken English all my life and had never heard it before today! We just use multilingual in everyday speech.

    I think more than two kind of languages.
