Bird song:number of languages

What exactly does this mean? I roll this luck trait and I have no idea what it does.

The starting luck bonus is added to the number of languages your character speaks.

Okay does that mean they speak one extra language or 6 or 15? It doesn't specify if it's one bonus language or more.

If you have a +1 Luck modifier, you gain one language.

If you have a negative Luck modifier, you may know less languages than you otherwise would (although you never lose Common).

As much as your ability score modifier - which is -1 for 6, and +1 for 15.
