Language learning

McCormick gained popularity by speaking several languages with native speakers that he met in public places, and uploading the videos on his YouTube channel.[3][4][5] He called this activity leveling up.[6]

McCormick taught language lessons remotely over the internet,[7] over time developing his own language learning method, which he called FLR (Foreign Language Roadrunning).[8][9]

The foreign language in which McCormick was most fluent was Mandarin Chinese. He also spoke around twenty languages at a basic conversational level, including Japanese, Vietnamese, Cantonese, Korean, Somali, Spanish, and Swahili.[3]


McCormick died on March 4, 2021, in Phoenix, Arizona, most reputably due to heart complications.[8][7][9]
