Never miss a talk! SUBSCRIBE to the TEDx channel: http://bit.ly/1FAg8hB http://j.mp/TxT14TimDoner Tim Doner 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 Times, BBC, The Today Show, Reuters and The Economist. He is starting his freshman year at Harvard next year and plans to study linguistics.

Tim Doner. You are a great inspiration. You have inspired me to follow my language passion and to learn a new language. Your closing line is a real killer punch. "You can translate words easily, but you can't quite translate meaning". I am inspired. God bless you.

Language is a tool to give sense to our thoughts and feelings. It's technology that evolved through the ages and with many civilization their impact still until now. The saddest thing that many people suffer from a programmed assimilation in another strange culture and language, as in south America, with the kurdes, with the Amazigh of north Africa and many countries. Some say that these languages aren't compatible with technology and they forget intentionally that language itself is a technology. Learning new languages open the mind to another culture and way of thinking, to break down with the standards of our cultures and think in an innovative and creative way.

Learning German rn So far so good but the prepositions and cases are killing me. The verbs dont help either. And I also have a hard time differentiating between ö and ü. Specifically in the word "drücken". The strange German pronunciation of r and the ü are making it difficult to pronounce this word for me.

He's an inspiration, I'm 14 and I speak English almost as good as my native language, Spanish. I also have been studying French since I was nine, but even though I have a really good pronunciation I only know enough to survive. I hope I can speak fluently 2 or 3 more languages when I'm 15, and thanks to him I think I can make it.

I have encountered some people who consider themselves as polyglot, when I practise with them in Cantonese, Chinese and Vietnamese, in which I can speak as my native languages, then I discover they prefer to show how language talent they are, rather than commnunicate what they say.
