Many teenagers spend their days browsing through social media, chatting with friends or lying in bed. Tim Doner, however, spent his teenage years teaching himself 20 languages!
In this Ted talk, Tim Doner walks us through his language journey, explaining how he became interested in languages after teaching himself Hebrew when he was 13 years old, as he wanted to understand more about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
He has since received wide acclaim for studying 20 different languages, including Arabic, Indonesian, Swahili, Farsi/Persian, Pashto, Hindi, and even the Native American language Ojibwe!
We hope you enjoy the video!
