Add three most widely known languages by country in EU per Eurostat

Description

In addition to for minority languages, and going beyond which was just about Italian, it would be nice to ensure that all European countries have data at least on the most important foreign languages spoken.

The "usual" special Eurobarometer 386 provides a table (p. 21, d48f) of the three most widely known foreign languages in each EU country, based on the ability to hold a conversation with a native speaker self-reported by interviewed persons. There's also a table on the ability to follow the news on radio or TV in English, French, German, Spanish or Russian (a selection similar to Eurydice 2012) but that feels less useful for CLDR.

I've also emailed DG COMM to see if detailed data is available (the relevant person should be Ian Barber, does anyone in CLDR TC have contacts?).

Updated from the table in comment 1, noting a couple of possible transcription errors from the PNG.

Thanks, sorry for the "cz" typo and any other. The commit looks good. I note two lines were not added/updated: de in CZ (it's more than pl), de in GR.

Thanks Federico. Updated with those two items, which were missed.

CY needs to be fixed, as Greek (el) is nearly universal. Set to 95%.

It seems that detailed data was released to http://languageknowledge.eu/about .
