  2. What are the best habits, routines, and strategies for never losing momentum?
  3. What kind of careers can you build with languages? 
  4. How can you supplement your income with no certificates, degrees, or training?
  5. What are the easiest certificates to get, and where do you start?

  7. ....and much more!

Speakers TBA.

  • 7-day all-inclusive luxury cruise in the Mediterranean with stops in Italy, France, Spain, and Malta to practice your European languages.

  • How many languages do I need to speak to come to the Polyglot Cruise?
    • There is no language requirement, all you need is a keen interest in languages and at least one language – then you'll do just fine!
  • ANOTHER Polyglot Event? Aren't there way too many already?
    • No. There can never be too many events, and with LangFest being in North America and the Polyglot Conference in Japan there are lots of people who are unable to make the trip. Polyglot Cruise is a complement to the existing events, not meant as a replacement and will not coincide with any of them.
  • Why a Cruise ship?
    • A cruise ship offers an unprecedented way for participants to socialise without having to worry about where to go for dinner or after-event drinks. Everything will be taken care of so all you have to do is have fun and socialise – which for many is the biggest benefit of language events.
