As promised in my recent review of the Polyglot Conference in New York City, here (drumroll) is a short film about my visit.
I’ve long wanted to try my hand at vlogging. There’s still a lot to learn, but, once I’d bought a new camera (on the same trip), I started shooting at once.
“Howtogetfluent at the Polyglot Conference” is the main video I’ve got lined up from the Conference. The other (next up) is a quirky and, erm, locally-themed, three-minute romp featuring more than thirty languages with more participants still.
Shooting footage was a great way to get talking to people at the Conference and a big thanks to all those who didn’t run a mile when they saw me coming (nobody did that, believe it or not 🙂 ).
Since returning to rainy London, it’s also been a source of immense pleasure to review and edit all the material. It transported me back to those special (and sunny) days in mid October.
I hope it will also bring back great memories for those of you who were there.
I hope even more that it will convey the vibe to those of you who weren’t and maybe encourage you to attend a “polyglot” event for the first time.
Remember, to feel at home you don’t have to speak multiple languages. It’s enough to be an enthusiastic learner of one.
Enjoy the vlog and do let me know what you think in the comments!
