I wrote Polyglot People to scratch an itch and because I am interested in languages and polyglotism in general.

If you want to know more or have any comments, suggestions and so on, feel free to drop me a line on my blog over at surface languages where I occasionally write about language, life, having fun and so on.

But in essence, I am a PHP, CSS and javascript programmer who is interested in languages (amongst other things), and learning of multiple languages.

I find language learning interesting and also find many other things interesting.

I have a job, family, dog, friends andother hobbies.

The list while by no means endless is still quite large, and learning languages has to fit into the available time.

I also live and work in the UK, and my job doesn't involve travel or languages.

The odds are perhaps stacked against me learning a lot of languages to a high level.

But this doesn't mean that I can't learn a few languages to a high B2 or low B1 level, and that is what Polyglot People is for, and as maybe you can guess is why it will continually evolve.

A high B2 or low B1 is good enough to communicate and have a bit of a laugh with people.

I am currently learning Croatian - which ironically doesn't feature on Polyglot People.

This is a part-time hobby project I worked on to scratch an itch, while the weather was bad and the evenings dark in the West Country.

This means that progress is likely to stop when the weather improves, and so the site will progress in fits and starts depending on the seasons and what else I have going on in my life.

This means that progress will soon halt until later in the year.

Suggestions for improvements gratefully received.


How to use Polyglot People

Polyglot People has been designed as a bit of run, to be used alongside additional resources.

There are 500 sentences which are all conversational, and all as if speaking to one person in an informal (but not slangy) setting.

Each unit contains ten sentences. The learn (square) screen helps you to learn the sentences in the lesson, and the second (test) screen allows you to progress further.

Have fun is the most important part of leaning languages (unless you want to be a spy or interpreter), and I hope you have at least a smidgen of enjoyment and use out of Polyglot People.

Writing it certainly scratched an itch for me.

Baci and besos.
