The world's richest man might seem to have it all, but Bill Gates has one regret. The self-made billionaire said he felt stupid for not knowing any foreign languages.
Speaking in his third Ask Me Anything question-and-answer session for online forum Reddit, the Microsoft founder revealed that he wished he spoke French, Arabic or Chinese.
He said: "I took Latin and Greek in high school and got A's and I guess it helps my vocabulary."
"I keep hoping to get time to study one of these - probably French because it is the easiest. I did Duolingo for a while but didn't keep it up."
Gates, who is worth $79.3billion, praised Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for stunning an audience in Beijing when he spoke fluent Mandarin.
He said: "Mark Zuckerberg amazingly learned Mandarin and did a Q&A with Chinese students - incredible."
