- I realized that I can easily speak backward by accident. While I was lying down in my room, I started saying all of the things that I had there backward and I did it with no problems - Jovan said.
He didn't pay much attention to this, but a similar situation happened the next evening and he decided to tell his parents, writes RINA.
- First, we thought that he was joking, that he rehearsed it, then I wrote a word on the paper - Otorhinolaryngology, which is difficult on its own, and then he said it with no problems - then we realized he has talent - said Jovan's father Rade Jeremic.
- He came and said that he can do it, we didn't believe him, but we realized that he is not joking and that he can do it - said his mother Biljana.
However, besides the fact that he can say words backward in his native language, Jovan can also speak the words backward in a foreign language.
- I can speak backward in English and French, and other foreign languages are not a problem for me, I just need to hear the sounds correctly - said Jovan with a smile.
He was among one of the favorite children in school, and the friends always ask him to speak backward.
- They wanted to know how do I do it, what is the secret, so I read some parts of the books backward, but he also sang some song backward - he said.
There is a world record for this talent, and Jovan is preparing to break the world record these days, and he will know after the new year whether he was successful or not.
