    Reminds me of 50 years ago when I was teaching conversational English in Japan. I spoke little Japanese, but my boss was fluent. One day he accompanied me to a shipyard where I taught. Some of the students got there early and started gossiping about us. He was translating their comments for me, then when the session started , he stood up and addressed them in Japanese - a few red faces.

    I just LOVE this! My dad spoke fluent Japanese. He learned while he was stationed in Japan when he was in the army. When I was younger, we'd go to Japanese restaurants, and he would speak to the staff. They used to get the biggest smile on their faces when he would launch in to ordering and asking them about their families. He was Scandinavian and had a crew cut so they never suspected that he knew how to speak their language.

    • Matteo Sposato
      Matteo Sposato Hace un mes

      @Pro Semite Well having a lingua franca is a different thing and, if that is what you meant from the beginning, I agree that it wouldn't be a problem as long as it doesn't eliminate the underlying language diversity (if that is possible) and as long as it is accepted by all the parties. Anyway in fact such languages emerge during history, with English being the most widespread as of today; yes, it is true that English is not currently spoken by everyone, but the extent to which it is spoken is something that is already very impressive to me (of course I am talking of at least basic usage)

    • Pro Semite
      Pro Semite Hace un mes +2

      @Matteo Sposato I don't exactly see your point. Yes, languages are the result of their environment and people are attached to them but that can be said of everything. A global language would perfectly encapsulate the philosophy of language, that being ease of communication and it certainly isnt impossible, all countries have already accepted English as the lingua franca of the world and mamy have begun to teach it in school. The only real problem here is the people not being able to access the education which is admittedly inefficient

She said, but I bet he can't speak swiss german. I turned around and said with a big smile, in perfect swiss German: Of course, I do speak Swiss German. Their Jaws dropped to the floor. 🤣🤣

    I'd love to learn a few dialects of Chinese at some point myself; It's a life goal to become a polyglot so that I can speak to just about anyone I come across. As a native English speaker I've already picked up German and French, and living in upstate New York I have interactions not unlike this all the time with folks from Quebec and Montreal. Canadian french dialects aren't quite the same as the school-taught Parisian, but it's close enough minus the occasional slang.

What I grew up with is a sense of fear towards talking about others differences as if it were a bad thing. Our attitude when in regard to certain topics, is so different compared to other cultures. We don’t take the route of appreciating each others differences for fear of insulting or upsetting others. It’s a shame really 😕

    Having seen a few videos like this on different channels, what's most striking is the people speaking their native tongue have never been mean. Here they're amused by the shirt but nobody was insulting or mocking him. I was hesitant to watch videos like this at first because I usually find traps being set for people just as creepy as the private behaviour sometimes caught (and selectively revealed). He didn't draw it out waiting for someone to embarrass themselves, he presented a benign opportunity and spoke up as soon as any reference was made. What a delight to witness only friendliness and no conflict! Toxic behaviour gets far too great a share of our attention.

      So, you like actors faking that these are real situations? They do it to make money on ESclips, just do it in public because it just seems more real that way, right? The fact they have an entire film crew with them doesn't give the fakeness away, does it? It's the same people making fake helping the homeless videos in mass numbers too, that way they can also seem like people they clearly aren't to make a buck!

    This happened to my son while we were living in Germany. We lived there for 10 years, so he was very-much fluent in speaking, reading and writing German. One day, he was on a ropes course waiting his turn, and two German man behind him starting talking about him, (my son was maybe 14 or 15 at the time) and they even made a comment about his race. When he turned around and responded to their comments with ease, they were *shocked.* 😂 Making assumptions based solely on appearance truly can end up making you look like a fool.

He went on vacation in Canada and was on a bus in Quebec and a bunch of people were making nasty comments about him during the ride. When the bus pulled up to his stop, he told all the people on the bus to F off in French. He said they were so shocked that he knew what they had been saying about him.

    My brother studied languages at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center in
    California. The pace of study was intense. Students had to master the language course in 36-64 weeks. Psychologically it was very difficult, but fortunately he was helped by Yuriy Ivantsiv's book "Polyglot Notes. Practical tips for learning foreign languages”. The book " Polyglot Notes" became a desk book for my brother, because it has answers to all the problems that any student of a foreign language has to face. Thanks to the author of the channel for this interesting video! Good luck to everyone who studies a foreign language and wants to realize their full potential!

      “He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.”
      ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭22:20‬ ‭NIV‬‬
      The LORD of LORDS, NAME of ALL NAMES is coming back SOON.
      “Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.”

    What an incredible, wonderful, creative way to engage people whose native language is not English. No matter what language (sorry, I don't know this young man's name), he is speaking, he is always respectful and kind nd I marvel at how people react to him. My mum raised us to include all people in our lives when possible and because that was around 40 years ago, it almost seems like a dying tradition that never took off. My life has been enriched by including an eclectic group of friends and past co-workers. What a joy to watch the joy and appreciation on these folks faces (even under their masks!), when they witness this wonderful kid who actually took the time to try to learn to communicate in their native tongue. It's what we need in this Country right now--this guy should be signing 40 million dollars 5 year contracts like the sports stars. I can't stop smiling.....
