George is a very intelligent man but is not very good at speaking other languages, if he has not yet learned to speak Italian after more than 10 years who spends the summer in Italy ..... let's talk about girls!

I think that having a total conversational level of Italian (or any other language) is what George was talking about. I think that he can "get by", but to me that's not being fluent in another language. I have trouble enough with English sometimes!

Il a etudie francais a l'ecole. But said he wasn't very good at it. His joke was that living in Kentucky, English was a second language so learning French was impossible.

By this I understand that he may have learnt the basics but it was a long time ago and he couldn't communicate easily with Celine's parents.

Some Italian yes, but he's not fluent. Far from.

I would think his Italian would be reasonable after all the time he has spent there. I think he probably speaks enough French (from the Celine years) and Spanish (the trips and home ownership in Mexico) to get by but nowhere near fluent.

When he was promoting Syriana didn't he state that he knew a little Farsi - from the film and his college roommate? Phrases and the like?

Agreed. I would think with his job it would be beneficial for him to pick up phrases and a bit of language so that he does not have to completely rely on an interpreter even time he steps out of the country and also for a bit of control. I mean he was papped out to dinner in Berlin on his own getting sushi - he must have a few phrases down to be able to get around and order a meal - even if he has a driver dropping him off and picking him up at the door of the restaurant.

He is probably like everyone else in that when he is going overseas, he downloads and learns general phrases in the foreign language (listens to them on his iphone/ipod) so that he can at least make an effort - which is always appreciated by the locals. I'm a big fan myself of Survival Phrases on iTunes. Handful of helpful sayings to help you get around in your travels.

He doesn't need to know German to order sushi; he needs to know Japanese! In any case, I've yet to find a German restaurant in central Berlin where there isn't at least one person who speaks english.

Yes, I agree he probably knows phrases and such in different languages. I'd guess that as an actor he learns thinks relatively easily so could pick up phrases and such like as he travels.

Does he really need to know any language? He's surrounded by assistants and, no matter where he goes, pretty much has everything taken care of for him. He lives in luxury accommodations, no matter where he goes and seems to eat and drink pretty much the same thing no matter what country or where he is.

As far as learning the language of the girls he dates? Why? I doubt they talk much when they're together. And, based on the videos here with him "speaking" Italian, he sounded like every other American who tries hard but sounds like what he is...an American butchering the Italian language!

George may be many things but I don't get the impression he speaks a whole lot of foreign languages...unless we're counting Kentucky English!

He likes to hop over the France all the time when he is in Italy, to gamble and whatever else he does there. Think he will know sufficient French. Just not as fluent as perhaps he would like. Italian will come more and more natural to him as time goes on. But other languages that he won't NEED a lot, no. He uses interpreters in Sudan. So its a good example.

talking to the foreign born girls, meh... He has said they find him boring when they realize how he really is. Think that means not a lot of talking, but actions. George is a very busy kind of guy. I think even at home, he prolly stays busy. To some ppl, that is relaxing.

Maybe he has had to have some films done on other languages. And perhaps didn't want someone else doing the voice over for him. Some actors do that themselves. he would prolly have to listen to tapes of pre recorded scripts in that language needed. You can learn a lot from that, seeing the words and hearing them. Knowing what they mean ahead of time helps like that.

it's me I think you need to high tail it over to Como this summer, ring his doorbell and ask him directly how much Italian he really speaks.

Then report back to us! :-)

He attempts to speak Italian with a strong, nasal American accent.
Probably can understand it. Just can't deliver....

Languages or accents aren't his forte, I guess.
I think George Clooney has always had the same accent in every film I've seen.

Can't remember. Haven't seen all his films. Nor any TV shows he appeared in.
