An 8-year-old boy, Niall Thoguluva from Chennai, can read and write over 106 languages. The polyglot has used the internet and YouTube in order to pick up a truly astonishing number of languages. He says: “I do not know how my interest in languages began. I can read and write over 106 languages and can fluently speak 10 languages. I am currently learning five new languages.”

The boy is now teaching pronunciation to his parents. A happy and proud father, Shankar Narayanan said: “Last year, he started developing an interest for new languages and from there he took a great leap. Making use of the internet, he started learning one language after another.” It is incredible to imagine that the 8-year-old child has learned the languages within a year.
