How fast you can master the foreign language with a perfect knowledge of English. Here is a cool map which  could give you an answer on this question. I noticed a very interesting point on the map. English is mach more similar to Italian, Spanish , French , Portuguese and even Romanian than German.  German was even put into the different category.  And who said English is a part of Germanic family of Indo-European Languages.

Ethnically dispersed palette of first Russian demographic censes.

This is a very interesting map from the French world atlas published back in a end of 19th century. Map described vast ethnically dispersed palette of first Russian demographic censes conducted back in 1897. The map is also interesting because it is a first non Jewish oriented map which would show the distribution of Jewish population in Russian Empire. We are not taking Pale of Settlements maps published prior.
