ID=27753815(NEWSER) -- A New Zealand man won the French-language version of Scrabble, despite him not speaking the language natively or knowing what the words mean.

Memorizing the spelling of French words, however, is something Nigel Richards has mastered. The BBC reports that Richards memorized the French dictionary in nine weeks.

And if winning the 2015 French version wasn't enough, Richards has won the English-language World Championship in 2007 and 2011 as well.
