You are familiar with a little bit of a lot of different languages, and can try to decipher similar languages on the fly.
Benefit: Whenever you encounter creatures speaking a language you don’t know, you can attempt to communicate by using phrases and words from similar languages. This requires you to make a Linguistics check (DC 15) for each concept you try to convey or understand, and even then only simple concepts can be exchanged. (As a general rule, each check allows you to send and receive one ideas that can be expressed with no more than five words, each with no more than one syllable.)
