When I was challenged to take a quiz asking whether I could identify 19 languages by glancing at one phrase, I had to take it, even though it had the condescending title of “If You Can Identify 75% Of These Languages On Sight, You’re Probably A Genius”. I know it was meant to be clickbaity rather than condescending, but it still irked me some. Genius has nothing to do it, but rather how privileged you have been to have either been very international, or very educated in languages.
Still, I had to take it.
I got 16 out of the 19 right, which is 84% and technically makes me a genius by Buzzfeed’s standards. Obviously their standards are quite low.
So, anyone else want to test their language prowess? Tell me how you did!
