Tim Doner is 17 years old and speaks 20 languages (polyglot means “many tongues” or “many languages”). Can you imagine how effortlessly he must flow through so many different cultures around the world? Tim can engage in conversation with perhaps half the people on this earth. That’s astounding. The video below documents his trip to NYC.
He makes the point that language is a reflection of culture, and that when he learns a new language, he becomes a “bit of a different person.”
Of course, SpeakSheets isn’t designed to help you learn a language from the ground up. It is specifically designed to provide enough language help to get by on travels to a foreign country. And for those who fall in love with a culture, there are many tools to continue improving one’s language skills beyond the travel basics.
