Imagine being a baby that is able to speak over three languages before most children even learn to walk. Twelve-year-old American kid, Caleb Anderson, does not need to imagine. According to a post made by Afro Tech on Facebook, the genius child already knew over 250 words at only nine months old.

By 11 months, he was speaking and reading English fluently. Leveling up even further, little Caleb was fluent in Mandarin, Spanish, and French at only three-years-old.

His parents who were wowed by their child's amazing intelligence quickly tested his IQ which led him to get accepted into Mensa, a high IQ society reserved for only the smartest of the smartest.

Caleb quickly went through a lot of learning material meant for children his age and then even material meant for children older than him.

Soon he became bored with what was being offered in regular school, explaining to his parents that he was ready for college.

“He said, ‘Mom I’m bored. This is not challenging,’” Anderson’s mother, Claire, said

“It’s really not helping me grow in my learning and I think I’m ready for college.”

This was when the decision was made for Caleb to go to college where he is currently doing his sophomore year in an aerospace engineering programme - something that he obviously finds challenging enough for his ever-developing mind.
