What Languages Does John McWhorter speak? October 5, 2009

I liked the courses of John McWhorter from the Teaching Company and I was curious what languages he does speak himself.

After some research, I found out he speaks English and then French, Spanish and German fluently and Japanese to some extent and can read and more or less speak Latin, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Esperanto, Swahili, Hebrew and Saramaccan (which he mentioned in his course).
