Language Learners

Learning languages opens new perspectives, makes travelling easier and tourism more interesting, can allow learners to reconnect with their ethnic heritage or build bridges to recently arrived migrant communities. In our increasingly interconnected world, language skills can be an important competitive advantage in the job market.

The more languages one knows, the easier it usually is to start learning a new one. This applies of course to languages from the same family: even an elementary knowledge of Spanish will make learning Portuguese or Italian easier; speakers of German can usually learn basic Dutch with little effort.

However, learning how to learn is in itself a precious skill. School Latin will not help you with Mandarin vocabulary; it will however help understand how language works and how you learn a new language, including which aspects in it – whether its phonetics, its grammar or vocabulary – represent a major hurdle for you.

Poliglotti4.eu helps language learners by:

  • Showcasing research in best learning methods and the factors that enable multilingualism;
  • Creating a catalogue of on-line resources for language learning.

The sound of a language is important. I've always thought that Swedish is a wonderful language because it has so much musicality and sound to it. -- at the same time knowing a language well also makes it more beautiful
