Heavy_ Mercy : β€œI don’t have enough money to go to school” my heart broke....

Ray Mak : The Malaysian who asked him questions in so many different languages is quite talented herself too.

Hinakichu : Boy: Can you buy now? Woman: Can you speak German

Ritesh Ranjan : These dislikes are from those who can't even speak their own native language !

Frolic the Cat : Boy: I need to sell this so i can eat Women: Hold on lets here some tigawanese first 😑

Gabriel von Wolfhausen : Very impressed, his Spanish is not the greatest but given his young age and lack of proper teaching, I think he did exceptionally well

Aracelis Santos Torres : I would give him 20 bucks just for showing me that amazing talent

Melissa Tan : Wow The lady is also very talented Speaking many languages

Rachel Pamorada : Yes! I remember, that's why he looks familiar, he talked to me in Tagalog when I visited there. Haha. Very clever kid.

Its a She PuBg : Im a Filipino. "wala pera" - no money "wala jowa" - means no boy/girlfriend HAHAHA the jowa one is funny he is so clever.. I cant even master my own mother tongue

Gina Maries : I hope you bought everything the little boy was selling. Because you made him speak several languages and video taped him. He is brilliant! The United Nations should hire him as an interpreter.

Shar Blackmon : He is raising money to go to school but he’s already smarter than the teacher πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

FriedEgg : I was walking through Siem Reap in 2007 and this 12 year old boy selling postcards came up to me and asked me where I was from. I asked him why he wasn't in school and he said he had school every day until 12, then he worked after that. I told him I was from the UK, he replied by telling me the capital of England and its population. I then told him I actually lived in Wales, and he replied by telling me the capital of Wales and its population. I was so impressed with his english and general knowledge I bought several postcards from him.

AMD Mei : I don't regret I clicked this recommendation. This bring me tears. God bless you, boy

Kshetrimayum Chengloulemba : Then there are some people who even unlike the video.. Are they jealous or what???

Jabs420 : Truth be told, school would probably only slow him down. His ability to absorb would likely eclipse his peers. His talents will take him far, ain't nobody need to worry about this one πŸ‘
