No other nation that I am aware of is facing the language challenge

that we are up against. In spite of our technological advances, such

as this e-mail, communication is breaking down due to language

diversification. With the rate of growth of non-English communities,

it is increasingly difficult to maintain viable communication.

I assume you're talking about the number of different languages spoken

in the US. Right? Has anybody established a maximum number of different

languages appropriate for maintaining viable communication? Obviously it

has to be four or more since Switzerland seems to do ok.
