Sebastién can speak 12 languages and counting. That’s a pretty amazing feat, especially since most of the people I know can’t not even complete English sentences not too good. Sébastien Roger de Nuñez, or Seb for those of us languagely challenged, not only looks and sounds like he is totally going to take your girlfriend, he also learns different languages as a means to be able to teach improv to people that speak that language. Did you get that? He puts together complete improv shows and teaches people how to do improv in a ridiculous amount of languages.
Make sure to check Sebastién’s website for info on his movie (http://whatmusicdoyouspeak.com), his upcoming language courses (youtu.be/vdImQveEI0c), his improv classes and his TedX talks. We barely scratched the surface when he was on the show, he is an amazing guy!

Language is tricky. Something said in one language might have the intention of sounding like something else in another language, but the subtleties of each word do not always translate from one to the other. It's a challenge that some people take on and can travel the world and experience new things. For others, it makes it really convenient that there is fast food internationally.

improvisor, instructor, language
Sebastién and I talk about learning different languages, traveling, trying not to offend anyone on accident, making up songs, and, of course, improv! We then “get busy” and record a sketch based on language and not understanding very good. That will be a lot more funny once you listen to the episode.
