Where did he learnt to speak Arabic? ( i'am sorry if its not Arabic). I mean he couldn't have learnt to speak it so well in some months.

Greek was the lingua franca in the city at the time.

Ezio says that his Greek is "non-existent".

Then the developers really messed it up. Every Florentine nobleman of the 15th century should know Greek.

Well his Turkish was absurd but apparently it was there. ;)

Ezio says that his Greek is "non-existent".and it was most likely a joke. He grew up as a noble, he definitely knew both Latin and Greek.

I wonder what language Minerva spoke to Ezio in. And what language Ezio spoke to Desmond in.

TWCB automaticly change their language to the person's language they are talking too.

Yet Juno spoke to Ratonhnhaké:ton in English while he spoke Kanehsatà:ke to everyone he knew back then.

He knew English already.

Yes but that wasn't his first language. If what Lothario said is true Juno should probably speak Mohawk in that segment.

If you know that much English at that age, you're pretty much a native speaker.

Cause the animus could translate Italian, Turkish, Greek, Arabic, you name it, but not Mohawk.

And yet there are subtitles from the animus for Mohawk in English.

And i found another reason why, how could they learn the voice actors of TWCB speak Mohawk? Its not like you can learn to speak it well in some months.

I'm sure that if they really wanted to, they could have found Mohawk actors who sounded close enough to Juno's real voice actress.

Connor is bilingual the same way Altaïr was. I don't think he has any more trouble understanding or communicating in English than in his native tongue, so it's not a big deal. I'm bilingual, English isn't my mothertongue, yet most of the time I find myself thinking in English. Sometiems it's even easier to express myself in English than in my mothertongue.

And yet there are subtitles from the animus for Mohawk in English.Well, the Animus is only able to translate languages entered into its memories. At some stage German, French and Arabic (AC1), Italian and Spanish (AC2), Greek and Turkish (ACR) were all imported in the memory core. It is reasonable to assume however, as that because they were either too busy, or were unaware exactly as to who's memories Desmond would be viewing next, Rebecca never thought to include Mohawk into the translation software.I know that doesn't explain why the subtitles translate correctly, but it might explain why the words themselves are not translated.
And we always have heard TWCB speaking English so why change that?I think it's safe to assume that the First Civilisation spoke in the native language of the person with whom they were conversing. The speech is most converted into English for ease of understanding.

That also happens to me!

Altair apparently knew French, English, German, Arab even Italian.......On second thoughts, it is more likely that French would have been the "official" Crusader language though.

If anything, it would certainly make investigating his targets a lot easier.
