I came across this weeks Favorite Film Friday video on Twitter and even though it is a *gasp* 10 minute long video it (cliche) doesn’t feel that long when you are watching.
A video made by the @irishpolyglot Benny Lewis of www.FluentIn3Months.com, Benny who I met briefly at a conference in Vancouver last June is (as nice as someone can possibly say this statement) a freak of nature. He fluently speaks 8 languages!!! 8!!!
In this video he is on a train in China on a journey taking him over 2,000kms and he surprises the people sitting with him on the train with his skills speaking Mandarin to them. It’s pretty to cool to see how people react to an Irish guy speaking fluent in their native tongue. Have a watch and learn more about Benny.
