Japanese is considered to be one of the hardest languages to learn, but apparently not for this bird, who speaks it fluently. Granted, this feathered linguist was raised in Japan, but still . . . You just have to watch the video, because the bird can straight up have a conversation!

Most of us have seen parrots say a few words here and there, but this little Japanese bird can actually talk. Abe chan, who's become a viral star, is a Hill Myna bird, known for its ability to perfectly mimic sounds and the human voice, but no one ever said they can carry on a conversation with their owners. In the video clip below, Abe chan and its owner are discussing phone etiquette. Absolutely crazy!

Unfortunately, Abe chan passed away a while back, so now the owner is teaching Japanese to Suga chan, a new Hill Myna. The bird is currently taking beginner's lessons, but in a few years, will probably be answering the phone like nobody's business. 

RIP Abe chan. You may have passed, but your Japanese conversational skills are living on, and they are blowing people away.

Abe Chan: Uhm Hello, this is the Ono family.
Abe Chan: What’s wrong?
Owner: Abe-chan, you’re a little too early. Once the phone’s picked up, then properly say hello.
Abe Chan: Okay, understood.
Owner: Do you really understand? I’m counting on you. Hello, this is the Ono family residence in Gifu.
Abe Chan: Okay, I understand!
Owner: Got it.
