AFP S2E22 – Daniel Krasa: Learner Profiles 4

In this season finale of season 2 I’m bringing you another instalment of the Learner Profile series. This time we’re taking a look at the journey of hyperpolyglot Daniel Krasa, who is a published author of multiple phrase books, dictionaries, and language learning materials.

Daniel Krasa

I first met Daniel at the Polyglot Gathering in Berlin and he had one of the more interesting name badges, I believe it said something along the lines of “too many to count!” which immdiately got me interested in learning more about his story. After talking a bit with him and also reading a profile Assimil had done, I knew I had to get him on the podcast to share his experiences learning many languages.

Sorry about the poor audio quality the first 5 minutes of the podcast.

    Thanks for the podcast! I admire this guy. I’m doing a minor in translation, and it is limited to Chi-Eng translation, which, as you may know, is almost the only combination that’s worth a discipline on its own. But I’ve always dreamt about putting all the languages I’ve learnt and will learn to use, and Daniel has found an excellent niche for that! I hope I will be able to do something like that, at least as a side-job.
