Watch a polyglot duo stun strangers with their crazy language skills8/14/2012
While most of us struggle to communicate even basic courtesies in another language, here are two polyglot viral sensations making everyone who can only stammer out “gracias” look like lazy fools. Moses McCormick from Columbus, Ohio, and Benny Lewis from Cavan, Ireland, are eager to show people that the best way to learn is by conversing. To illustrate this they went to a mall and approached strangers, at first making small talk in English and then surprising them by switching to the other’s native language with ease and fluency. In this video you can hear them speak in Cantonese, Mandarin, Hindi, Wolof, Fulani, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Spanish, French, Tamil and Portuguese. Respect!
Does this inspire you to learn to speak more languages?
