Yet Another Person Who Makes Me Feel Stupid — 16 Year Old Polyglot
If you're anything like me (and I know I am) you like to feel that you are a reasonably intelligent person. Maybe even just a bit more intelligent than average. Then, along comes a 16 year old kid who can speak 20 languages. A person who can speak several languages is known as a polyglot.
Okay, he's not completely fluent in all 20 but, some of the languages he can barley speak are languages I've never even heard of. He has instructors for some of the languages, others, he is learning on his own.
When I was 16 I spoke English and just enough Spanish to ask Pepe directions to the library.
Check out this kid!
