Do polyglots just talk about language learning?
If we did, we’d probably bore each other very quickly!
I had the pleasure of meeting Richard Simcott and Luca Lampariello in Poznań, Poland earlier this month. We share six common languages (Russian, English, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Italian) and we gracefully switched from one language to another as we walked around the historical parts of the city and enjoyed each other’s company over various Polish dishes. We were very fortunate to have Michał Grześkowiak, a local Polish polyglot, to show us around town and speak to us in Spanish.
It had always been a dream of mine to speak as I think and say what came to my mind in whatever language it happened to be. (I constantly have to censure myself to stick to languages the people I am speaking to can understand.) It was a relief to be able to just be me around these polyglots because I knew they’d understand me!
Here is our fun video in Spanish about our culinary discoveries in Poland. We do talk a little bit about language learning. Luca, Michal and Richard are three very funny and entertaining polyglots!
