This episode comes with a bit of a difference, as Lindsay and I were reporting live from the Polyglot Gathering in Berlin.

We bring you reports and impressions from what's going on at the event.

There are opportunities to listen in to the fabulous language introductions. We had the opportunity to learn about all kinds of languages, from Indonesian to Greek.

It’s about people coming together and accepting each other for who they are. It’s a life philosophy, in a way. - Jordan

I also brought my microphone to several new people - hear the personal language learning stories of Tristan, Jordan and Stephen who are all English native speakers learning over 5 foreign languages. It's possible!

The Polyglot Gathering is sponsored by our own podcast sponsors, so this time there's a double shout out for italki - you can get started learning languages with native speakers on there. Get started with a "Buy 1 Get 1 Free" Offer at www.fluentlanguage.co.uk/italki

2) Was ist das hier?

The Kafka referenced after I heard Lindsay's story is "Die Verwandlung" (metamorphosis).

Languages heard on this show: German, Esperanto, Spanish, French, Indonesian, Greek, English...I think that's it!

Catch up with Lindsay's video blog from the Polyglot Gathering.
