Meet the Chinese woman who writes in two languages simultaneously

A woman from north China's Hebei province has revealed a unique talent years after accidentally discovering it in high school: the ability to not only write with both hands at the same time, but do it in different languages.

Chen Siyuan's talents extend to writing poetry using different hands to write consecutive sentences simultaneously, and perhaps most surprising of all, writing Chinese with one hand and English with the other.

The 24-year-old didn't develop her skill through hours of practise.

Instead she discovered it by chance while trying to save time on large amounts of English homework at her high school in northern China, the Daily Mail reported.

"When I was in high school, I unconsciously wrote with both hands while trying to finish my homework in a hurry," she told People's Daily Online.

'My classmates were curious and tried to imitate me, but none of them succeeded," she added. (ANI)
