Daniel Tammet is an English writer and autistic savant known for his exceptional abilities in memory, language, and mathematics. Born in London on January 15, 1979, he grew up in rural Norfolk, England. Tammet's parents were both teachers, and he attended a local comprehensive school before studying at the University of East Anglia.

Tammet's ability to learn languages quickly is one of his notable achievements. He can learn a new language in just one week by memorizing thousands of words and phrases. This skill earned him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest language learner.
