We all know we should try to speak the local language when travelling, but most of us can only say hello in different languages, or manage a few basic words at best. Then there’s the popular American YouTuber Xiaomanyc, who takes it to a whole new level.
Xiaomanyc, also known as Arieh Smith, is a polyglot and content creator from New York City. He is passionate about learning languages and connecting with people from various cultural backgrounds. His videos showcase his linguistic skills as he converses with native speakers in their mother tongues.
Arieh films himself going around NYC Chinatown pretending to be – in his own words, ‘an ordinary and clueless white’ guy fumbling his way through menus at local Chinese restaurants. Suddenly he switches to fluent Mandarin and Cantonese leaving staff and patrons shocked.
Just check out some of these reactions 🤣
