Fluent in English, Portuguese and sign language
In addition to his native language, Spanish, Ezekiel Cardozo learned to be fluent in English and Portuguese before beginning his university career. In addition, he knows LESCO (Costa Rican Sign Language), used natively by non-hearing people in the Central American country.
