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.
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 immediately 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.
In this episode you will hear about:
- How Daniel got into language learning
- How an early start in language learning vaulted him on to become a hyperpolyglot
- How he went from a small gig to a full time career in languages
- How he learns languages
- A-ha moments and lessons learned from learning many languages
- How to maintain languages
- How to set proper goals
- And much more
