English Speaking Lad Gets Booted In The Head And Wakes Up Speaking Spanish

English Speaking Lad Gets Booted In The Head And Wakes Up Speaking Spanish

Good news lads, if you didn't pay any attention at school but now wish you could speak a foreign language, there's a simple solution. Brain trauma!

Reuben Nsemoh, 16, from Georgia, had never spoken Spanish fluently before - in fact English was his first and only language, but after being booted in the head playing football (the proper football) and falling into a three-day coma, he woke up bilingual.

Another player kicked Reuben, who plays goalie, in the head when he dived for the ball. He was having seizures before paramedics put him in a helicopter and rushed him to the hospital.

Traumatic brain injuries can cause short and long term changes in language, according to TBI researchers with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

RSPCA And Firefighters Called After Fox Gets Head Stuck In Tyre

Reuben said he has a lot of Spanish-speaking friends, who speak the language when he is around, so maybe that has something to do with it.

Although he's almost fully recovered from the injury there are times when he slips back into speaking Spanish and he also says he has the feeling of not being there when he is.

If you're reading this mate, mejorate pronto.
