EWTN Catholic Q&A
Pope Benedict 16
Question from Judy Andre on 04-19-2005:

How many languages does our new Pope speak? Does he speak English?

Answer by Colin B. Donovan, STL on 04-26-2005:

I understand it is ten. The following have been confirmed: German, Italian, French, English, Spanish, Portuguese. I think we can be certain Latin is one of them, and probably Greek and Hebrew. I wonder if Dutch might be the tenth, since is very close to German.
