    apparently, Viggo Mortensen speaks seven languages (four fluently, and three far better than most people on the planet could ever manage), and has even given speeches in both Arabic and Catalan in the past.

    Which are the seven languages Viggo Mortensen speaks?

    According to Mortensen, he speaks English, Danish, Spanish and French fluently. He also says he is conversational in Italian, a language similar to Spanish, which means many Spanish speakers understand a fair bit of Italian, and vice versa.

    The two other languages he understands are Norwegian and Swedish. Both languages that he can more than ‘get by in’ when he speaks them.

    It is impossible to know perfectly 7 languages. Well, simply because the language is constantly evolving and dynamic. Yes, you can know languages at an intermediate level, be able to explain your thoughts, ht, and with errors. you can really know 3-4 languages well, and then some of them should be similar. Well, either the person doesn't do anything else besides learning the language. But there are very few such people who do this.

    I don't know, he seems to be effortlessly conversing with people in the clips that was posted. That is flat out amazing - no halting deliver either, from what I can see. Language is constantly evolving - sometimes, I can't understand half the phrases my own kids say these days, but that doesn't mean I'm not a fairly perfect English speaker.

    No, it's not impossible. Some brains just work differently.
