Have you ever visited a place where you didn't speak the language? It's pretty tough to navigate. Say you make a trip to America and you only speak Portuguese. Even if you have a friend that can translate for you, you'll probably end up feeling pretty isolated, since you can't really communicate or navigate on your own. Now, say that your friend didn't speak English, but knew how to speak Portuguese and French, and knew somebody else who could speak French and English. You still wouldn't stand a chance of navigating the country. You might, however, end up making a comedy masterpiece to last the centuries.
