In this video, an interview is taken from Polyglot who knows more than one language. This video presented a child who is ten years old and knows five different languages. This video also described the way of raising multilingual children in 5 languages. Polyglot is a person who knows and able to use several languages. In this, people learn the different languages from each other who belongs to different culture and country. I think it is the best way to know about the culture of different people and also helps in improving the relationship with other culture people having a different language.

It has several advantages as it provides the opportunity for people to learn a new language and to know different people. Personally, knowledge of several languages provides a lot of benefits in which not only our brains work differently but we are also able to improve some cognitive skills. by this way, our brain thinks faster inappropriate way. The people who know several languages cannot face difficulty in other countries or places as they easily communicate with people of that area and easily mix up with them. A person who speaks several languages has the extra ability to learn other things easily. It also provides a traveling opportunity for people. The people can go where they want and communicate with different culture people having a different language. I think that polyglot can easily overcome with some cultural barriers. Also, when a person goes to a foreign country then they easily speak the language of that country and people of that country will be pleasant to that person. The other benefit is that people can easily do business to other countries people. It provides them with a good opportunity to get money and make their good career in some other country. According to me, it is beneficial as it provides the ability to be more productive.
