As revealed in his latest Reddit AMA
On Wednesday afternoon, Bill Gates returned to Reddit for his third “Ask Me Anything” session. Though this AMA didn’t prove to be quite as informative or entertaining as his past efforts, he did share some fun tidbits. For example: he prefers sauce over dry rub when he eats barbecue, and he’s got two dogs named Oreo and Nilla.
The Microsoft cofounder also took a moment to praise Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. One Redditor asked, “Is there anything in life that you regret doing or not doing?” Here’s how the billionaire responded:
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.
So there you have it. Bill Gates is not perfect and doesn’t even speak any languages besides English.
