Children's brains are made to learn.

My kid has done some really weird shit with computer programs that I never would have thought of.

It's possible to retain some plasticity into adulthood, but yeah, kids are amazing at it.

Whoa! That is too cool! I'm kind of blown away by that, actually. I'd never have predicted such a thing, especially given the language barrier.

According to the CIA World factbook, English is one of Ethiopia's official languages (https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/et.html) (as the major foreign language taught in schools). The other official languages are Amarigna (Amharic) and Arabic.

Of course, Ethiopia has *a lot* of languages, and the article doesn't give what town these were dropped in, so it's hard to know how familiar the people there were with English.
