At only 8 years old, Mabou Loiseau became a global sensation grabbing attention and making headlines for her rare ability to speak eight languages
The child prodigy could speak English, Kreyol, Spanish, French, Russian, Arabic, Mandarin, American Sign Language and was learning Japanese.
According to blackhistory.com, when Mabou was barely two years old, her mother noticed that she was speaking some words in French, but her mom didn't even speak French.
Her mom immediately began to realise that her daughter had been born with a rare talent.
Mabou’s mother started teaching her different languages, and would even hire nannies that spoke different languages.
