Daniel Tammet, It is reported that he can now speak ten languages, one of which he learnt in no less than a week!
Born in 1979 and has linguistic, numerical and visual Synesthesia. This is what makes him one of the true, real life super humans.
The Synesthesia he possesses turns all his information into colors making it easy for him to combine words and numbers. It all weaves together to form a colorful way for him to perceive the world.
In 1998 Tammet took up a volunteer English teaching post in Kaunas, Lithuania, returning to London the following year. In 2002 he launched the online language learning company Optimnem. It was named a member of the UK's 'National Grid for Learning' in 2006.
In 2004, Tammet was finally able to put a name to his difference when he was diagnosed with high-functioning autistic savant syndrome by Professor Simon Baron-Cohen at Cambridge University's Autism Research Centre.
