    Optimus, Ironhide, Ratchet and Jazz had to surf the internet to learn to speak.

    Sentinel... just started speaking it.

    How?

    He did just have the vessel of all knowledge jammed into the essence of his being.

    While everyone thought he was dead, he was actually spending hours trying to learn our languages inside the Ark.

    In the novel it says that Optimus imparted it in to him before he revived him.

    Also a valid explanation is that the Matrix could have contained our languages, so when Optimus used it to revive Sentinel, everything in the Matrix was passed to Sentinel. That's why at first he was making growling noises, until finally he spoke.

    Could also be a form of foreshadowing: He may have learned our languages before coming to Earth [and subsequently crashing in the moon].

    He didn't at first. When he just woke up, he was speaking Cybertronian, ("BLAGBWIBLIGNABLARG!") only after a brief pause did he make with the English.

    when the matrix gor plunged into him it came with it some knowledge, he even questions the language he is speaking in the novel.

    Well, when the Autobots first arrive in the first film and explain that they learned Earth's languages through the world wide web, I concluded that they did so instantly since they're super advanced alien robots. I would imagine that they wirelessly access the internet and gather information practically instantly. So, I assume that the case was the same for Sentinel; he probably accessed the internet wirelessly and learned English instantly.

    I've been going with what IMDB says (yeah, unreliable source, and all that touchy-feely crap) under the goof section - that they "implanted" the language in him before reviving him. Could also be why he didn't jump to question why everyone is different since he last saw them.

    Personally, the gibberish is just a result of him convulsing from the Matrix instantly jarring him to life.

    Ok fair enough, but what explains him having an Earth mode BEFORE coming to Earth.

    EDIT: Nvm, just found this thread not explaining it:lol
