Imagine being fluent in two or three languages—that would be great! But some people can speak five, ten, twenty languages! Those people are called polyglots. In this Chatterbox episode, Andrew speaks with polyglot YouTuber Lindie Botes about language and the best techniques to learn many of them.

Fun facts

Ziad Fazah is recognized as the man who speaks the most languages in the world. He claims to be able to speak 59 languages, although not everyone believes he is fluent in all 59. Regardless, that’s an impressive title to have!
