16-year-old speaking 20 languages will blow your mind

Posted on January 24, 2013 by

This 16-year-old polyglot will BLOW YOUR MIND with the 20 languages he knows at varying levels. He starts with English and French — his two best languages and goes on to German, Italian, Turkish, Swahili and Ojibwe to name a few. While he gets help from his teachers and friends for a few of them, mainly he learns by reading books and teaching himself.

He demonstrates the 20 languages in this 15 minute YouTube clip with the disclaimer that his grammar isn’t perfect. Still, it makes me think WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE. It definitely inspires me to pick up the French books I abandoned and teach myself.
