    Well, technically, it is gramatically correct. However, I am at a loss as to how and why one would *treat* it. By applying a magic multilingual potion, maybe? Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to make a pun out of it, just trying to understand its metaphor. What is the context here?

    Thank you! Yes, it's metaphorical, you know, monolingualism as an illness that can be cured by learning languages.
