# Why does "Se habla espanol" translate to "We speak Spanish"?

I see on stores that they have a sign that says Se habla espanol. From first glance I would think that it is saying "It speaks Spanish". How is it unambiguous that it is saying "*We* speak Spanish"? I think that "We speak Spanish" would be Hablamos espanol. Are these both acceptable translations?
