A language need be spoken or written, that means it must be learned. For that sake you need a dictionary, at least one. But the number of dictionaries in the infinite and eternal universe is at most countable.

Languages belong to real life. Nothing in real life is infinite.

Let everybody consisting of at least one hydrogen atom in the universe present countably many dictionaries. How man dictionaries would be existing?

Languages belong to real life. real life is never infinite. Only fools can believe and swindlers can assert that uncountably many languages are possible.

Further uncountably many languages would not help in mathematical discourse. There only all languages spoken by the participants can be used.

Why should I? Nothing of that kind can be proven because there is no definition of definition. Your claim has absolutely no relation to the fact that every countable set has at most countable subsets, whether or not they are defined.

That would be necessary if listing the elements was the only possibility to prove countability of a set. But it is not. And just this schism makes the contradcition: The set has no bijection with |N, but its superset has, proving the set countable.

Is it really so difficult to understand that? Is it because you have never mistrusted set theory for many years?
