Have you met Benny the Irish Polyglot?

Our friend and supporter, Benny the Irish Polyglot, has recently taken up learning Japanese. Here’s a fun little video that he put together which also features our italki Japanese teacher Yuri.

Benny has a great website that talks about how he “hacks” language learning. From his site:

I have picked up quite a lot of short-cuts, unconventional learning techniques, and a pretty good mentality that has hugely helped me to learn these languages, and earn the title of โ€œpolyglotโ€. This site is for sharing these tips so that others may also live their dreams of being able to speak other languages!

One of the most important tips that Benny gives is that you just need to SPEAK a language in order to learn it. You have to connect with other human beings and make mistakes and learn from those mistakes. Mistakes are great learning moments. So what are you waiting for? Schedule a lesson with an italki teacher now!
