More than seven million YouTube viewers have watched 19 year old Sara Maria Forsberg, or Smoukahontas, from Finland turn various languages into 'gobbledygook' in her video ‘What Languages Sound Like To Foreigners'.

She read a 5 live travel bulletin in her freestyle gibberish style, using incorrect words rather than following the script, to show what the English language sounds like to foreigners.

Sara Maria Forsberg also told Rachel Burden that she can only speak three languages fluently.
