I absolutely love learning language. Everything about this one cultural aspect amazes me; how it binds millions together, how it represents the culture’s attitude on life, how it evolves, why it evolves. Naturally, I could only dream of being like this kid who can speak over twenty languages fluently in his early twenties. To know someone’s language is to know their heart.
My insight: This remarkable young man is what we call a polyglot- someone who can speak more than four languages fluently. But he doesnt stop at four; he can speak twenty! Tim has a special mind that takes easily and has an affinity to the structure and variances of language, and easily adapts to them in his learning. I think this is an amazing example of how languages share common roots, and our work to learn can bear great fruits.
