You can, although über sounds a lot nicer if you ask me. If mehr als was not accepted, feel free to report it.

I should hope so! They told us he was 133 years old, so he's had plenty of time to do something constructive - no more of this holy potato nonsense.

Could this also be translated as "Duo speaks about 30 languages"? Not in the sense "around 30, but we are not sure", but more like "about the 30 languages he learnt in his lifetime"

Perhaps because the question stem didn't day "more than 30 foreign languages" (?)

If Duo speaks 31 languages, then he speaks over 30 languages, but not over 30 foreign languages, since one of the languages is his native language, and only 30 are foreign.

If a talking owl that knows 31 languages grew up in a bilingual household speaking Klingon and High Valerian then it only knows 29 foreign languages.
