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.
