Meet the 8-Year-Old Who Speaks 8 Languages

By Aura Bogado Sep 25, 2014

Mabou Loiseau already speaks English, Kreyol, Spanish, French, Russian, Arabic, Mandarin and American Sign Language–and is now learning Japanese. At only 8 years of age, she also plays eight instruments.

Watch Loiseau, who says she wants to learn chemistry and biology soon, in this interview with Katie Couric that aired over the summer. Spoiler: she wants to be a lawyer, a brain surgeon and a singer when she grows up.
