The Ignorant Teacher


My friends, this riddle shows us that we have a lot to learn, if only we know how to listen.

Ask me any question out loud, and I cannot answer you.
I don’t speak your language. But you do speak mine.
I am not as smart as you are. I know literally nothing.
But remember to take me with you in your adventures.
Because in times of dire need, my knowledge can save your life.
People have known me for thousands of years.

Brandon, you’re almost there. Let’s just say it goes well with a map :)
