Meet Philip Crowther, the baller who speaks six languages and is currently giving the world extensive coverage on the growing tension in Russia.
Crowther is an AP reporter based in Kyiv, Ukraine. His name went viral 2 years ago during the Democratic presidential debates, for his six-language coverage. Now he's back in the headlines for his incredible work.
Philip was born in Luxemborg. His mother is German
and his Father is British. He is a polyglot or multilingual person. He speaks six languages; English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, and Luxembourgish (Only about 600,000 people speak Luxembourgish worldwide.)
As if that isn't impressive enough, Philip is also the the White House correspondent for France 24. Meanwhile his recent six-language coverage from Kyiv has now gone viral. In comparison the person writing this piece speaks English and Pittsburgh-ese. I took 7 years of Spanish and can ask 'Where is the bathroom?' That's about it.
