Speaking In Tongues - Can It Be Taught And Learnt?

I recently saw a video in which little christian kids were being taught amongst other things speaking in tongues.  I thought this was a "gift" of the spirit.  So is speaking in tongues a learnt skill or a gift?

Enjoy

@davidylan, You've not got the gift doesnt mean it has not been given, You've just not recieved.

@E_DIPO, You faked yours because u wanted to feel among, if you've gat the Holy Spirit, you ought to speak,

i have heard a very terrible experience about speaking in tongues when i was young. my cousins took me to church despite the fact that i am a muslim. new comers were invited for a special meeting and one of the things we were thought was how to speak in tongues.

in order to flow with the trend, i faked mine and the pastor was happy to hear me speak in tongue, he has got a new soldier you'd say.

a gift of the holy spirit can not be thought.

thats my opinion.

its a gift. Many adults (myself inclusive) unfortunately dont have it. My dad does but i dont remember him trying to force me to learn it.

They are little children. Do you think God would be angry at them for doing what they cant understand yet?

Speaking in tongues is not supposed to be taught like you would teach a child ABC.

If anybody would rather call it a gift, fine. But its definately not to be taught.

Does any other christian have anything to add?
