New York City teen is a polyglot and the city is his school

Just happened to come across Tim Doner by accident on Youtube-I like to see what the sidebar video links are to the video I'm watching. So while getting a little into Swedish culture, I clicked through two other links and saw polyglot. Well, which 20 languages does Tim speak? He'll tell you as he goes around New York City!

Tim's interest in history led to his learning Hebrew, Arabic, then other languages. He mentioned a quote by Nelson Mandela: "If you speak to a man in his second language, you speak to his brain. If you speak to a man in his mother tongue, you speak to his heart."
