The Bourne Memory

I have always been a huge fan of the Bourne series with the main character, Jason Bourne, portrayed as an agent for the United States gone rogue in a search to discover his lost memories of the past. If I remember correctly he lost his memory while on a mission and was shot. The form of memory loss that Jason has is amnesia. This essentially means that he has forgotten many aspects of his life, including his real name, and where he came from, but he retains kinetic reflexes, hence his ability to use all of his fighting skills he acquired during his training program. The training program also severely altered his state of mind and as a result made him into a completely new person. I always found it fascinating that it was possible for him to lose the part of his memory that would be most important to one's mind, but instead he retained all of his physical capabilities. However, if this is the case, then how is it that Jason could remember all the other languages he had learned? And know essentially everything else about his past except for his real name, what he is, and where he came from? The retrograde amnesia that impairs Jason's memory should have also made him incapable of retaining all those languages, along with his name and past.
