Mr Patel as....The Lame Linguist

In his job as a tour guide, this fella must be multi-lingual. He therefore speaks seven languages, including English, French, Spanish, German, Portugese, Italian and Klingon. He reckons he picks up languages quite easily, but that’s not quite true. You see, although his bosses are regularly wowed by his extensive knowledge of European chatter, they’ve no way of knowing whether any of it makes any sense. In truth, he muddles his way through using a combination of hand signals and Del-Boy-esque phrases.
