如果你未聽過 Reddit 的 AMA,你一定會覺得好有趣。Reddit是一個書籤網站,其中一處為AMA (Ask Me Anything) 即「問我任何問題」的環節邀請名人新貴使用一個普通名字來回答問題。近日,世界首富在AMA做了三個問題。我見到第一個問題他這樣回應:

What Bill Gates Regrets not doing

bill gates redditIf you haven’t heard of Reddit’s AMA,  you wouldn’t be alone.  The bookmark website has a section which invites celebrities and high profile names along with more regular “Joes” and “Janes” from around the world to be “asked anything.”  AMA stands for “Ask Me Anything.”  Recently, the richest man in the world did his 3rd Reddit AMA.  In the first question I saw, he responded to the question:

Hi Bill, my question: Is there anything in life that you regret doing or not doing?

His response:

I feel pretty stupid that I don’t know any foreign languages. I took Latin and Greek in High School and got A’s and I guess it helps my vocabulary but I wish I knew French or Arabic or Chinese. I keep hoping to get time to study one of these – probably French because it is the easiest. I did Duolingo for awhile but didn’t keep it up. Mark Zuckerberg amazingly learned Mandarin and did a Q&A with Chinese students – incredible.

While I realize many of you here in Hong Kong learn English as a second language or “foreign language” to some, I would encourage you to be even one step better: take another language under your belt and take it seriously.

Many years later, you won’t regret it … like Bill Gates did.
