Bilingual/Multilingual Models
Hey guys

This is my first post ever...so wish me luck.

I love languages and models so I figured I'd make a thread for models who can speak several languages whether it's their mother tongue plus English or a third, fourth, fifth language. Hopefully there isn't a similar thread already...and if there is I apologise for doubling up.

Anyway, to get the ball rolling here are a few clips I've found of models speaking their native language or a second/third language.

Freja Beha speaking Danish

Frida Gustavsson speaking Swedish

Daria Werbowy speaking Ukrainian

Candice Swanepoel speaking Portuguese
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0R4ptlximI

Coco Rocha speaking French
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ODhh5MOSPA

Gisele Bundchen speaking Spanish
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BYWAo53GTk

And last but not least...

Model-turned-Actress Charlize Theron speaking Afrikaans

I love this! I know that Andreea Diaconu can speak 5 languages. She speaks English, Romanian, French, Italian and a little bit of Mandarin.

Eva Herzigova speaks 5:
Czech, English, French, Italian and Russian....and I'd assume she'd be able to converse in Slovakian too.

Languages and models! Two of my favourite things.

Anna Ewers can speak German and English and she went on a school exchange to Colombia so I'm guessing Spanish too.

I love when the Brazilian models speak Spanish...like Gisele and Adriana (below). It's basically Portuñol but still cute.

I know Candice and Behati speak Afrikaans fluently since it's their native language but I can't seem to find any videos of them speaking it.
Afrikaans is my favourite language to listen to.

Here's one of Natasha Poly speaking her native Russian (at 1:30)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bop2FRf5nZ4

Magdalena speaking her native Polish
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5o0sazFWdc

Anja Rubik speaking her native Polish
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0oIsyJtM1M

Toni Garrn speaking her native German
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vo0ENekKtKY

Milla Jovovich speaking Russian (I assume she speaks Ukrainian as well)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPoxKIlM-cs

Carmen Kass speaking Estonian (in an Estonian film)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBWTUTzoFUk

iD also did a few short clips on models speaking their native languages:

Liu Wen speaking Chinese
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKOpjRElEEM

Tao Okamoto speaking Japanese
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0hVrjD5HcI

Barbara Palvin speaking Hungarian
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08pt5jzyD9Y

Some of the models sound so different when you hear them speaking their native language or a second language! I love it!

I don't have a video, but Sophia Ahrens speaks her native German, English, and judging from her instagram she's pretty fluent in Italian, too.

Wouldn't like 99% of international models be at least bilingual? Really only American, Canadian, Australian and British ones can get by with just one language. The rest have to learn at least English as a second language.

^ No.. Irish models speak fluent English. We are not the same as British models.

Does any one have any clips of KK or Anne V. speaking their native languages? Because I don't think I've ever seen one.
