Teenage Hyperpolyglot

Posted by pretzellogic July 10, 2013 in the Group General Discussion.

From the Economist.  Apparently, one of the kid's 20 languages is mandarin.  I love this part, quoted from a book that was part of the Economist article: "... in his book "Babel No More", reviewed here. Most hyperpolyglots are male. Many have some combination of being gay, left-handed or ambidextrous, and poor in visual-spatial skills. A surprisingly large number are boorish anti-social types."
