Have you ever tried to learn a second language and found it so bloody difficult that you just gave up in the end? After all, what's Google translate for?!

Well, this little LAD is sure to put you to shame because he claims to speak and understand over 10 different languages. How is that even possible? I don't understand English at the best of times...

A video of the boy went viral after tourist and traveller Venus GWC posted it to Facebook. It now has over 27,500 shares and 22,000 likes.

The post reads: "HOW MANY LANGUAGES CAN YOU SPEAK? WHAT WERE YOU DOING WHEN YOU ARE AT HIS AGE?

"I met 2 kids in the Ta Prohm temple at Angkor Wat. First was Lisa, she is 7 years old, she was selling flute alone, I approached her and talked to her, she told me she can sing the famous cat song in Tik Tok. We had fun playing and recording.

"What really shock me was another boy who is so talented, he can speaks more than 10 languages.

"I met him at Ta Prohm temple, which is the famous Tomb Rider filming location. I feel grateful that his video gone viral, it might creates more awareness to people there are kids still struggle to live their life everyday.

"Be thankful and be grateful. Be kind and be good. Love. Peace."

The little boy was selling souvenirs to tourists - he had a basket full of magnets, flutes and bags which he was trying to flog.

At one point he told the tourist: "Please buy one from me. I don't have enough money to go to school."

Venus spoke to the boy in many different languages and he told her he could speak Cantonese, Chinese, English, Thai, Japanese, Korean, French and Spanish.

He also spoke Mandarin, German, Filipino and Malay. Impressive or what?

Many people have responded to the Facebook post, one said: "Such a clever boy should not just sell things by the roadside. After it goes viral, I hope someone would notice it and help him for the sake of his future."

Another added: "He's really talented and should go to school and uni, bright future if someone sponsors his education."

A third commented: "Very impressive! Love his positive vibes that spread around the world despite his circumstances."
