Hi everyone! I’m Josie and I’m very happy to be here for my first polyglot conference. It is incredibly inspiring to read through everyone’s stories – thank you for sharing them. Truthfully, I’ve struggled with learning other languages and have tried many different methods, but I have such an appreciation for the beauty of languages and the connections that they bring to the world that I can’t help but still want to be part of communities sharing that same passion. I hope to be able to converse with you all in a multitude of languages one day, but for now I will keep trying and be cheering you all along in your learning goals.
I’ve been working on a project to showcase words from around the world as a way to keep learning and inspiring others to do the same. I’d love to hear what your favorite words are. Mine is dimmi Italian for tell me. It’s a simple word, but I love how connection and conversation always follows it.
Always open to chatting about language learning and I of course welcome any tips/advice
