Chen Siyuan aChinese woman from Handanis gifted with the ability to write simultaneously with both hands in different languages and directions.
Many hands make light work, the old saying goes. Although no Leonardo Da Vinci the 24-year-old shows ere how she writes two different Chinese poems simultaneously either in the same direction… or not.
More amazingly she can also write in two different languages at the same time, a trick she taught herself in high school when she struggled with huge amounts of English homework.
"English uses letters of the alphabet while Chinese is a pictographic language with lots of complicated brush strokes. English letters are more fluid and smooth, so writing in both English and Chinese is a bit harder than writing in English and English"she says.
In her daily life Chen is right-handed and says she has not much use for her special skill. But with the right helping hand she thinks she might be able to perfect it.
