How many languages can Philip Crowther of the Associated Press speak? At least six. We know this because he's recently reported on the war in Ukraine in English, Portuguese, French, German, Spanish, and Luxembourgish.
The last of these is not surprising once one learns that Crowther was born in Luxembourg to a German mother and a British father. He was raised and educated in Luxembourg, as well as the UK. His travels have taken him around the world, where he rounded out his linguistic versatility.
So as this compilation of his recent reporting shows, Crowther is a very useful person to have when a news organization needs to understand and deliver information about rapidly changing current events.
