Haha, that's great! Here in Mexico there was an ad for an English course similar to that joke: A burglar enters to a house in the night, when there is nobody. He silently gets into the living room, and then he suddenly hears some fierce barks. Obviously, the man goes out very quickly, and then the shot is opened to show that the dog is sleeping, and it was the parrot that made all of the sounds!! It was quite hilarious!!

it can help you in a big way. you can use it to learn other people's culture and traditions. and in a practical way, you can use it when you try and get a job or when your in an emergency in another country. or like in your example, you can use it in you defense, just like what lawyers do. but for me,learning a different language can help you have friends around the world.

Once upon a time there were two Bulgarian shepherds. One day a foreigner passed through them and asked them something in English. The shepherds didn’t understand him. Then the foreigner asked in German, then in French, Italian… The shepherds didn’t understand anything. They talked only in Bulgarian. The foreigner continued his way without help. One of the sharps said “So, we have to learn some foreign languages to be able to understand people.” “No, we don’t. You see, that man knows so many languages, did he understand us?”
