Frans Timmermans speaking 6 languages
in a human rights video
I already knew that our minister for foreign affairs had worked as a diplomat in Russia
and had learned Russian on the job, but as it turns out, the man is a true polyglot and
can converse in seven languages (of which he speaks six in this video - the seventh is
Limburgish, a regional language spoken in the Netherlands - his accent in Dutch also
reflects the Limburg accent).
He speaks English, French, German, Russian, Italian and Dutch in this video.
Particularly his English is standout for a foreigner. I am very impressed.
(And as a foreign minister he will put this to good use...)
