Personally I would not say that that I have mastered any language, but I am acquainted with all these languages enough to see that they all seem related, with the exception of Japanese which is an offshoot of Chinese, and seems to arrive from an independent origin.

As for Hebrew and Ancient Egyptian they fall in to the category of Semitic languages.
the others are in the category known as Latin root languages.

When you compare, Egyptian Hieroglyph, Phoenician, Hebrew, Greek, and Latin there is more than a passing resemblance among them. They can be seen to be related easily after looking at them for a while.

What would be the benefit for God or man of making it difficult for all people to communicate easily with one another?
