What if Carly Rae Jepsen's music video "Call me maybe", was about making international multilingual friends? See here...

To answer this question, I worked very hard to completely change the lyrics of her original song and worked with the language learning community to get it translated to over 30 languages! As you can see, I managed to convince some of Youtube's best-known polyglots to join me and sing this!

Make sure to check out their channels - each of which is clickable through their name in the top-left, or their thumbnail at the end.

If you liked this video, please don't forget to share it on FACEBOOK with your friends (just copy and paste the youtube web address from your browser to your Facebook status, or click the Facebook icon under Share here on Youtube), and click the Thumbs up icon!

While the video has subtitles printed into it, you can also activate them in OTHER languages on Youtube! If your language is missing, send me a translation! (More info in the blog post) This way it will be understandable to the entire world, as a language learning video should be :)

I welcome any language (or dialect) that hasn't been included already, if you are willing to do the translation! Also, if you are learning that language, please activate its subtitles and try to read along ;)

Big thanks to Susanna and Steve for helping me with the initial lyrics, and for Luca and Mae for helping me with my Italian/German bit, and Julianna for the ASL tip. Also, thanks to Couchsurfing Belo Horizonte for helping me with a fun final scene! And of course thanks to all the contributors, who I discuss in detail in the link above.

The instrumental music used is by "Hits Now", but of course Carly Rae Jepsen owns the rights to the music and original lyrics. This video is not monetized to respect the artist (it's main purpose is to promote language learning and other language learning Youtube channels). Go buy her excellent songs to support her!
