Isaiah Gyamfi, a 2-year old boy from Ghana, is getting international attention as a child prodigy that knows how to count in at least 4 different languages and how to solve complex math problems.

Isaiah started showing extraordinary intelligence at the age of five months, his mother Jazelle told Mirror. She said she noticed him enjoying learning one day when he was watching a video on her phone on YouTube and then she decided to put on a video about Japanese numbers.

Jazelle said Isaiah listened to the video repeatedly until he could recite the numbers back to back. He learned to count up to 40 in Japanese by himself in just less than 24 hours.

When Isaiah was just 4-months old, Jazelle, who is an early childhood education teacher based in London, already started creating a learning environment for him. She put numeracy and literacy flashcards in their living room so Isaiah could learn through visuals.
