How can one learn to speak 30+ language in 23 years? (Yes, thats 1.3 language a year)
But wait, “Thats not possible right?”
That was my first thought when I heard someone yelled,
“HEY! This guy can speak more than 30+ languages!” at the Polyglot Conference in Budapest.
I was like “What?”
My next thought, “Prove it.”
And Emanuele did not disappoint.
Many polyglots at the Polyglot Conference verified it with the languages that we know.
Alex Rawlings, UK’s Most Multilingual Student, who can speak 11+ languages himself said this about Emanuele,
“It’s not only the range of languages that amazes me, also the depth in each language. Thats amazing.”
Watch Emanuele in action, then learn how he did it in this first time ever, English interview with Emanuele.
Hyperpolyglot Emanuele In Action
We were only able to test 16 languages, he knows so many that no one at the conference can speak.
But we believe him
Emanuele’s Story and His Language Learning Method
What I Learned From Emanuele
Although his method is traditional, as it’s text book and written based first, there are three things that stood out for me.
- Learn the sentence structures of your target language first (Which is similar to Tim Ferriss’ method)
- Create a communication with someone by filling in those sentence structures with vocabularies (Very high chance that those vocabs are high frequency vocabs)
- If you mastered your method, I mean, REALLY mastered it, you can produce amazing result no matter what your method is
Over to you.
