If you thought that polyglots are just serious language lovers who spend all their time talking about grammar, you are wrong!

I spent three fun-filled days in Poland with Richard Simcott and Luca Lampariello switching languages and making some videos about language learning. We spent most of the three days laughing and enjoying Poland. The language videos were just a pretext to meet. As I discuss in the video, it had been my dream for many years to be able to speak as I think, switching from language to language, without censuring myself because my listener didn’t speak the language that was in my head. Being with Luca and Richard afforded me the luxury, and the great pleasure, of just being myself and saying whatever was on my mind, even switching languages in mid-sentence.

In this video, we talk about how we prevent confusing our languages. The transcript and English translation are on Luca’s blog.

Enjoy!

  • I’m glad that this meeting took place in Poland. It’s remarkable. Coincidentally, I have already known all of the speakers. We’re going the same paths. 🙂
