(English) Tim Doner – The Youngest North-American Polyglot


Tim Doner and Jimmy Mello

Tim Doner, is a very famous polyglots all over the word, I would like to try to tell things about him, but the awesome interview will show much more, and Tedx has a better description about him: “Tim is a senior at the Dalton School in New York City who has studied over 20 languages. His interest started at the age of 13, after several years of French and Latin, when he began learning Hebrew and soon moved on to more obscure tongues such as Pashto, Ojibwe and Swahili. As he describes it, his goal is not to achieve fluency in each, but rather to learn about foreign history and culture through the medium of language. He spends much of his time perfecting his linguistic skills in different neighborhoods around the city, and to date his Youtube channel has received over 3 million hits. Tim has been interviewed (in English, Mandarin, Arabic and Farsi, among others) for media outlets such as The New York TimesBBCThe Today ShowReuters and The Economist. He is starting his freshman year at Harvard next year and plans to study linguistics.” Source: Tedx Official website.
