We are deeply saddened to learn that Moses Monweal McCormick, aka 老鼠, has passed away. He was a talented linguist, a global ambassador to language learning, who was passionate about sharing his knowledge of language with everyone. Moses was one of the pioneers who published language learning videos on YouTube and became a positive influence to many language enthusiasts around the world. Moses was different from other polyglots in that he was never afraid to speak with strangers in hopes of bringing the world closer together through languages. He learned over 100 languages to a conversational level in order to have small talk with people of different cultures. The passion and energy he displayed were second to none. Moses has inspired millions around the world to learn new languages. We hope to echo for many how much we will miss him. RIP Moses. GoFundMe set up by Moses’ family to cover the costs of getting him back home in Ohio to them from Arizona: https://gofund.me/0d57425a

Hello everyone. Sorry for the loss. Some people think that when we lose someone, we lose them because of death and this is right, but the actual loss is when we forget them, when we stop doing what they added to our lives. Remember that they were here & there to help and encourage you to reach your goals. Success is a chain; each link is linked to the next one, so don't be the weak link. We NEED EVERYONE.

This is so sad, I was inspired by Moses. Moses is the reason why I am striving not only to learn Portuguese but also Italian. You are now with God and your spirit lives on. Respect my brother
