The Polyglot Project Podcast – Episode #10 – Alex Rawlings

by David · 13 comments


Alex Is Britain’s most multilingual student, so I jumped at the chance to record an interview with him when we met at a multilingual conference in Italy. We discussed many different aspects of language learning i.e the psychological barriers students need to overcome, setting realistic expectations and different methods for reaching fluency.

I had a really good time speaking with Alex and this is easily one of the best interviews out in the series.

You can find Alex on the web by following the following links:

    Everytime I want to download one of your podcasts (in Firefox) a new tab opens up and the podcasts plays. Anyone knows how I might download them then?

    • David Mansaray

      That’s strange. Try right clicking and pressing ‘save as’

        Hey, it worked and I thought I’ve already tried everything! I’ll finally download my favorite interview, the one with Richard Simcott. It’s so inspirational I like to listen to it on a regular basis. You’re doing great job with those podcasts!
