Yes! That’s what a 17 year old boy, Timothy Doner from New York has done. He learnt 23 languages just in a matter of few weeks.
Even Doner did not know about his hidden talent until he started learning Herbrew, which he easily picked up within a week!! Now Doner is being called by experts as ‘hyperpolyglot‘ often referred to a person who is proficient in remarkable number of languages. There are very few people in the world like that!
23 languages spoken by Doner are Hindi, Arabic, Croatian, Dutch, English, Farsi, French, German, Hausa, Hebrew, Indonesian, isiXhosa (an official language of South Africa), Italian, Mandarin, Ojibwe (a Native American language), Persian, Pashto, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Turkish, Wolof, Yiddish. Phew! That’s quite a list, isn’t??
