Yes, most people under the age of ~ 50 speak English, many older people don't. The younger they are, the better their English ;-) Kids learn it early now with all the video games they play plus all TV shows and movies have subtitles instead of being dubbed like in most European countries, so we have a better grasp of English because we hear it more ..... They start teaching it in 4th grade now, but when I was a kid it didn't start until 6th grade so I didn't speak a word when I moved to Florida. It was pretty tough ;-)
