Jorgensen is only 28 but hes already billed as the Worlds Greatest Linguist because he can speak 18 languages fluently, and another 10 conversationally.
Jorgensens goal is to learn a new language every year, and in his words, If I live to be 100, Ill speak 100 languages.
Hes already learning language No. 29 Furbish the official language of Hasbros Furby doll and spent earlier this week in New York serving as the official Furbish translator at the United Nations Plaza.
Jorgensen taught kids from around the globe Furbish phrases like Oo nye boh doo which translates to How are you?
It took him a month to learn Furbish, but Jorgensen says it wasnt as hard as Arabic or Japanese.
