Rank #1: Interview with Luca Lampariello

Podcast cover
Read more

In today's show, I chat with the man, the legend, the one and only, Italian polyglot Luca Lampariello. Over the past 20 years, Luca has reached a very high level in 9 foreign languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Swedish, Russian, Dutch, Portuguese, and Mandarin Chinese. Luca is full useful tips and strategies, which he shares in depth at his excellent blog, The Polyglot Dream. In the interview, we discuss:

  • How Luca got interested in languages.
  • Procedural vs declarative memory.
  • The weakness of rote memorization.
  • How to train your brain to learn better.
  • The myth that you have to be a genius to learn lots of languages.
  • The myth that you have to learn a lot of words to become fluent.
  • The myth that just reading or listening a lot will make you a better speaker.
  • The ability to translate and communicate are very different things.
  • Whether there is a proper order of acquisition for foreign language skills.
  • The myth that polyglots can speak all their languages perfectly.
  • The importance of maintaining previously learned languages as you take on another.
  • Luca's daily language learning and maintenance routine.
  • The myth that intensity always equals speed.
  • Luca's favorite tools for different stages of learning.

Rank #2: Interview with Elisa Polese

Podcast cover

Elisa Polese is an Italian polyglot known for teaching multiple languages at once (up to ten languages at a time!), including Arabic, Catalan, Dutch, Italian, English, Esperanto, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. In addition to her focus on multilingual learning, Elisa is also a big proponent of speaking from day one and getting over the fear of making mistakes. I had the privilege of witnessing her impressive multilingual teaching skills firsthand at the 2019 Polyglot Gathering in Bratislava, and it was exhilarating to see so many languages flying around in the room at once!

Rank #3: Interview with Katie Harris

Podcast cover
Read more
Katie Harris is the founder of Joy of Languages, a site dedicated to helping make language learning a joy instead of a chore. She was bored to tears with languages in school, but eventually figured out a more fun, effective approach to language learning that is focused on communicating with people and enjoying authentic listening and reading content. With a Masters in Linguistics from Cambridge University and an MRes in Speech, Language and Cognition from University College London, Katie does a great job peppering in just enough linguistics, psychology, and neuroscience to help language learners, but always keeping the focus on fun and efficacy. We first met at the 2019 Polyglot Gathering in Bratislava where I attended her talk How to Learn a Language by Watching TV and Film. Her philosophy was right in line with my "Anywhere Immersion" approach and I was eager to get her on the podcast.

Rank #4: Interview with Randy Hunt

Podcast cover
Read more

Randy Hunt is on a mission to learn a new language fluently every year. His current project is Italian, with Lithuanian as a side-project saved for weekend fun. Randy has his language-learning head screwed on tightly, and I firmly agree with his contention that learners can reach “conversational fluency” (the ability to talk with native speakers on a variety of topics) in a year if you spend enough time doing the right things. As we both have observed, most learners neither spend enough time nor do the right things.

Rank #5: Interview with Benny Lewis, The Irish Polyglot

Podcast cover
Read more

Benny Lewis is a fun-loving blogger, YouTuber, author, language hacker, and technomad from Ireland (hence his nickname "Irish Polyglot"). He is the creator of the most popular language learning site in the world as of writing, Fluentin3Months.com, and has authored five books. He has demonstrated again and again that it's possible to reach conversational fluency in a matter of months, not years as most believe. Benny's philosophy on language learning is right in line with my At-Home Immersion™ approach, as exemplified in the following quote from his book Fluent in 3 Months: How Anyone at Any Age Can Learn to Speak Any Language from Anywhere in the World:

“...where you are isn’t what decides whether or not you’ll be successful. Attitude beats latitude (and longitude) every time. It’s more about creating an immersion environment, exposing yourself to native speakers, and doing everything you can in that language.”

In the interview, we discuss:

  • The release of Benny's new book, Fluent in 3 Months.
  • Benny's language study plans for the coming year.
  • Benny's favorite places to find native speakers (including iTalki and Couchsurfing).
  • 5 common language learning myths and destructive attitudes that hold would-be learners back.
  • How Benny juggles multiple languages.
  • How to get "immersion without a plane ticket."
  • Useful language learning hacks such as using modal verbs + infinitives, using melodies to better remember phrases, and using mnemonics to better remember words, phrases, and Chinese characters.

  • The importance of making language ability a “need” instead of just a “want.”
  • The fact that anyone can learn a language since everyone does.
  • The key difference between casual language learners and accomplished polyglots.
  • What languages Richard speaks and how he learned—and maintains—​them.
  • The advantages of learning languages in university.

Rank #7: Interview with Lýdia Machová

Podcast cover

Lýdia Machová, PhD is a polyglot, language mentor, interpreter, TED speaker, the former head organizer of the Polyglot Gathering in Bratislava, and the founder of Language Mentoring, a site that shows people how to learn any language by themselves. Her 2018 TED Talk, The Secrets of Learning a New Language, has been watched nearly 4.5 million times, and has brought the language learning secrets of polyglots to a much wider audience than ever before. In the interview, we discuss: 1) Why Lýdia passed the reins to other organizers for the 2019 Polyglot Gathering. 2) How Lýdia got interested in languages and why the traditional classroom approach didn't work. 3) How non-traditional methods like reading Harry Potter and watching Friends helped her acquire languages quickly and more enjoyably. 4) How Lýdia defines "comfortable fluency" and what language level she aims for in each new language. 5) Why you should think in terms of hours not years when learning a language. 6) Why success in language learning depends on interest and finding effective methods, not being "good at languages." 7) Lýdia's thoughts on the "Critical Period Hypothesis" and why you can learn a language at any age. 8) Why there will never be a "good" time to start speaking so you might as well start practicing as early as possible. 9) How you can use simple language to speak around words you don't yet know. 10) Why speaking a foreign language is about applying the words you know, not translating word for word from your mother tongue. 11) The four core principles of effective language learning: ① having fun, ② choosing effective methods, ③ taking a systemic, habit-based approach, and ④ maximizing contact with the language. 12) How to use David James' "Goldlist Method" to learn vocabulary quickly and easily. 13) Why language apps such as Duolingo can be a useful adjunct to other language activities, but why apps alone are not enough to learn to speak a language. 14) The critical difference between "passive recognition" and "active production." 15) Why Lýdia always elicits specific language learning goals from her clients first and then adjusts her recommendations to fit them. 16) Lýdia's thoughts on the "I don't have time" excuse. 17) Why you should focus your time on a small number of core apps or resources. 18) How to fully leverage a single resource with multiple methods.19) Lýdia's words of encouragement for new language learners. 20) Why you don't have to be a "polyglot" to attend events like Polyglot Gathering, Polyglot Conference, LangFest, etc.

With seven languages under his linguistic belt and an academic background in Applied Linguistics, Olly Richards of I Will Teach You a Language has proven that he can both talk the talk and walk the walk. His infectious passion for all things language is a breath of fresh air in the increasingly cynical language learning blogosphere. In the interview, we discuss:

  • The under-appreciated importance of psychology in language learning.
  • How he has had to alter his approach to language learning now that he is learning a language in country where it isn't widely spoken (Cantonese in Qatar of all places!).
  • His experience participating in Brian Kwong's +1 Challenge (an approach he lovingly refers to as "crowdsourced motivation").
  • The role of teachers in language education.
  • The power of "negotiated syllabi."

Gabriel Wyner is a polyglot, former opera singer, the author of the book Fluent Forever: How to Learn Any Language Fast and Never Forget It, and the creator of the new Fluent Forever app, the most funded app in crowdfunding history. I highly recommend his book and app, especially to anyone who struggles with foreign language pronunciation or making new words stick. In the interview, we discuss: 1) How opera led Gabe to learn French, Italian, and German. 2) How a summer German immersion program proved he was not "crappy at languages" as he had previously believed. 3) Why opera is the perfect career for those who want to get paid to become multilingual. 4) The visceral difference between simply "pronouncing" a language and actually "thinking" and "feeling" in it. 5) Why you shouldn't learn a language through translation ("It murders you before you start.") 6) How images are a faster, more effective way to build new linguistics connections. 7) Why you should start with pronunciation training first. 8) How minimal pair training helps you learn pronunciation quickly and better notice your progress over time. 9) Why you can't make old memories go away (the groove remains!), but how you can make new memories more powerful (making the groove deeper). 10) Why images (and the meanings they represent) create stronger memories than spelling and sound. 11) Why personal connection ("self-reference") is the ultimate memory "supercharger." 12) How self-testing with flashcards can make your study time five times more effective than simply presented yourself with information. 13) The critical difference between "recalling" and "reviewing." 14)The power of "uh....?" moments and how spaced repetition can help optimize them. 15) Why modern digital flashcards are not really "flashcards" at all, but rather "computerized tests." 16) Why language learning doesn't take nearly as much time if you can actually hold onto what you learn. 17) Gabe's "minimum viable" daily and weekly language learning habits. 18) How to get immersion "chunks" wherever you are. 19) Why frequency dictionaries are linguistic gold.

Lindsay Williams has been hooked on languages ever since childhood when she got a taste of French—and the free croissants that accompanied the class! Since then, she's gone on to learn Spanish, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, German, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, Esperanto, Indonesian, Korean, Guarani, and more. Along the way, she developed a passion for teaching languages, too, and has taught learners in Costa Rica, refugees in the U.K., countless learners online, and even employees at a garlic bread factory! She now dedicates time to inspiring independent language learners and online teachers, sharing a wealth of useful tips and tools on her popular site Lindsay Does Language. She has also created one of my favorite new podcasts, Language Stories, a documentary series that highlights various languages around the globe and the people who speak them. In the interview, we discuss:

  • Lindsay's language “origin story."
  • Her most memorable language learning experiences.
  • The most common learner mistakes and myths.
  • Her daily language learning routines and "minimum viable daily habits.”
  • How to create "onion goals."

Donovan Nagel is an Applied Linguistics graduate hailing from rural Queensland, Australia (the amazing soundscape you hear in the background of our interview) and the man behind the language learning site and community, The Mezzofanti Guild, and the Arabic learning site, Talk in Arabic. Donovan named the site after one of his heroes, Cardinal Giuseppe Gasparo Mezzofanti (1774 – 1849), a hyperpolyglot who Donovan felt a strong connection to given their mutual background in theology, Greek, Hebrew, and Arabic, and the fact that they both focus on learning via contact with real people. In our interview, we discuss:

  • The difference between various Arabic dialects.
  • The fuzzy distinction between "dialects" and "languages."
  • Why you should NOT start with Modern Standard Arabic.
  • The importance of learning the Arabic dialect of the people you're interested in.
  • The pros and cons of learning a foreign language with a significant other.

In this episode of the Language Mastery Show, I catch up with my old friend Mike Campbell, the founder of Glossika. A lot has changed in the seven years since we last spoke at a Starbucks in Taipei, Taiwan, and it was fun to learn more about the innovations he's made at Glossika, his work to save endangered languages, and how his views on applied linguistics and language acquisition have evolved. In the interview, we discuss: 1) Mike's journey from Latin to French to Mandarin to the aboriginal languages of Taiwan. 2) Why language teachers should laugh at their students. 3) Why children make good language teachers. 4) How native Mandarin speakers use pronunciation shortcuts to speak more quickly and easily. 5) The importance of learning the International Phonetic Alphabet. 6) How to sound more like a native speaker by learning allophones. 7) Why real Mandarin tones in the "wild" rarely match what you see in textbooks. 8) Why Chinese characters are more like roots than vocabulary, and why this makes Chinese much more "semantically transparent" than English. 9) Why you should learn to speak before you learn to read. 10) Why "culture" and "language" are distinct entities. 11) Why there is no such thing as a "primitive" language. 12) Why there are no vague languages, only cultures that express politeness through vagueness. 13) Why you should focus on verbs and mostly ignore nouns when starting out in a language. 14) How to learn indigenous or minority languages. 15) How people can help save endangered languages. 16) Why the media has grossly exaggerated the current rate of language extinction. 17) Mike's effort to use Glossika as a tool for empowering speakers of minority languages. 18) Why Glossika's "Mass Sentence Method" is more effective than isolated vocabulary and how it differs from other spaced repetition systems. 19) Why Glossika is like a gym (just like with building muscles, you have to stick with the regimen and put in sufficient reps before you'll see results). 20) Why maintaining the "habit of the habit" is more important than your study volume on any given day. 21) Why Glossika is especially powerful for rejuvenating languages you've previously studied. 22) Why Mike leverages "role and reference grammar" in Glossika and how their tagging system overcomes the limitations of other grammatical hierarchies. 23) Mike's favorite classic novels and stories for learning foreign languages. 24) The power of creating immersion in your daily life by changing your phone's display language. 25) The role of language in identity and cultural pride. 26) The power of having a language in your biology instead of just in your technology. 27) How languages expand your worldview and improve your problem solving abilities.
