Yet another polyglot

Has anyone seen this?  He's very cute.  Tho I am only bilingual, I thought there must be young people who speak even more languages than 11. Are there?  I noticed some tiny minor mistakes in his Hebrew, but other than that he was great - tho his accent could use some work.  How was he in the other languages?  Judging by accents he sounded good to me.

French past tenses - Passé composé or Imparfait ...?

Hi guys! I'm new to the French language and I am having trouble differentiating between the passé composé and imparfait tenses. Is it possible for someone to explain when do you use which tense, in detail? For example, when writing a diary, or recounting certain events of the past, do you use passé composé or imparfait tense? Last question: is it true that passé composé is more commonly used? 

Thank you for all the help in advance! 

P.S.: If anyone would like to recommend helpful resources and guides that facilitated your learning of the French language, or any music, movies and podcasts, I would greatly appreciate that too.
