    1-Three languages are spoken by all of us.
    2-Three languages are spoken by each of us.
    3-Three languages are spoken by every one of us.

    In which case:
    a-Each of us speak three languages but these might not be the same.
    in which:
    b-We all speak the three same languages
    and in which:
    c-There are three languages we all speak (maybe some of us speak other languages as well)


    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: distribution

    All three are ambiguous. You need to construct unambiguous active voice sentences.

    Each of us speaks/we all speak the same three languages and no others.
    Each of us speaks/we all speak the same three languages; none of us speaks any other language.
    Each of us speaks/we all speak three languages, English and two others. My other two are French and German, Andrea's are ... etc.
