My default route is
    name: "Default",
    url: "{controller}/{action}/{id}",
    defaults: new { controller = "Account", action = "Login", id = UrlParameter.Optional }

Now in the controller, I have the method.
public ActionResult LanguageEdit(int id)

The corresponding code in the view is:
<div class="widget-content">
                       @using (Html.BeginForm("Language", "Country", FormMethod.Post, new { enctype = "multipart/form-data" }))
                           @Html.HiddenFor(m => m.CountryId)
                           @Html.Grid(Model.Languages).Columns(column =>
                          column.For(m => m.LanguageName).Named("Languages");
                          column.For(m => String.Format("<a class='btn btn-primary' href='/Country/LanguageEdit/{0}'>Edit</a> <a href='#deleteConfirmModal' role='button' data-toggle='modal' class='btn btn-danger deleteBtn'><input type='hidden' id='countryId' value='{0}'/>Remove</a>", m.CountryId)).Named("Actions").Encode(false);
                      }).Attributes(@class => "table")

We pass id (CountryId) to the method.
However for some reason, I have to pass another parameter languageId to the controller method.

So what is the best way?

What I have tried:

tried this, but still not clear. Need code assistance. Specifically in the view.

If it's part of the model use the same code you have for CountryId. If it's not then use

@Html.Hidden("languageId", languageId)

Read it using normal model binding or Request.Form["languageId"]

Do I have to change the route?

Nope. The route is when you want to get values from the url structure (as opposed to querystring values), you are passing your values as form fields.

I am struggling with the route url: "{controller}/{action}/{id}". It has only one parameter but I have to pass two parameters.

No need to change the route, just add this to the form

@Html.Hidden("languageId", languageId)

then add a languageId param to your Language action

public ActionResult Language(YourModel model, int? languageId)

the languageId param will then be populated with that hidden value. I've assumed it is an int, change the type as neccessary

In my opinion the simple way for passing a collection of parameters is create a class that has as many properties as "parameters" do you want.
For example:
public class model1
	public int param1;
	public int param2;

And then your controller should be declared as:
public ActionResult LanguageEdit(model1 model)

And inthe view something like:
@Html.HiddenFor(m => m.param1)
@Html.TextFor(m => m.param2)

This kind of "class" can be extended to any number of "parameters" of any kind (or type)

Sorry I didn't realise you were not submitting the form but rendering a link to click. You'll need to do something like this

column.For(m => String.Format("<a class='btn btn-primary' href='/Country/LanguageEdit/{0}?LanguageId={1}'>Edit</a> <a href='#deleteConfirmModal' role='button' data-toggle='modal' class='btn btn-danger deleteBtn'><input type='hidden' id='countryId' value='{0}'/>Remove</a>", m.CountryId, m.LanguageId)).Named("Actions").Encode(false);

Then change your controller action

public ActionResult LanguageEdit(int id, int? languageId)

"id" will be populated via routing, and languageId populated via standard querystring values
