Speaking in his third Ask Me Anything question-and-answer session for online forum Reddit, the Microsoft founder revealed that he wished he spoke French, Arabic or Chinese.
He said: 'I took Latin and Greek in high school and got A's and I guess it helps my vocabulary.
'I keep hoping to get time to study one of these - probably French because it is the easiest. I did Duolingo for a while but didn't keep it up.'
Gates, who is worth $79.3billion, praised Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for stunning an audience in Beijing when he spoke fluent Mandarin.
He said: 'Mark Zuckerberg amazingly learned Mandarin and did a Q&A with Chinese students - incredible.'

Bill Gates seems like a really decent, down to earth guy. It's interesting that he has a £120 million mansion, yet still does his own dishes and eats at home. Also like how he's not going to be leaving trust funds for his children, so they'll have to make their own way in the world instead of just relying on daddy.

Not that I have a lot of respect for him but the last remaining had left the building the moment he played dumb on the issue of microsoft operating from tax haven to save paying 4 million tax per day, and even tried to justified that.
