20-year-old Favour Chisimdi Nwobodo is a language prodigy.
She is versed in 9 foreign languages.
Favour, according to Women Power Africa, can comfortably speak languages like French, Spanish, German, Indonesian, Filipino, Korean, Swahili, Shona and Chinese. What is actually interesting is that the 20-year-old amassed these linguistics without going abroad or schooling in any of the countries. She learnt everything in Nigeria!
The polyglot is also fluent in Igbo and English language and is currently learning to speak Yoruba to add to her remarkable language list. Currently studying Medicine and Surgery at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Favour is what you may describe as a language entrepreneur. She runs the Empress Linguistics Services, a language service providing enterprise that offers language solutions to brands, businesses, engineers and so forth.
It remains to be seen if she will push for knowledge of more languages as she was known to speak only 6 foreign languages some years ago.
