Learning languages changes your life.

I discovered this fact 15 years ago, when I saw the world that opened to me by speaking English.

Since then, I’ve studied over 20 languages and can now speak six (French, English, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, and Mandarin) at a comfortable level.

Languages have allowed me to live in Japan for 6 years, visit many countries, and experience extraordinary times with native speakers and other learners.

The Average Polyglot is my way of helping you discover the world of foreign languages. I want to share my love for their intricacies while giving you tips to make the journey easier and fun.

Why subscribe?

Since September 2023, this newsletter has evolved and is now divided into two sections:

  • The Average Polyglot: A biweekly newsletter where I share reflections, tips, and more about language learning

  • The Language of AI: A biweekly newsletter where I talk about learning languages with AI. It’s also about learning to speak the AI’s language in a way.

By subscribing, you’ll not only receive both newsletters but also a link to download my eBook about 10 techniques to learn and remember better.

You can also choose to receive only the one that interests you most.

Why Become a Paid Subscriber?

By becoming a paid subscriber, you make me very happy for supporting my work!

Don’t worry, though, there’s also something in it for you!

As a paid subscriber, you’ll join the inner circle. You’ll receive an extra series:

  • 💭 Thursday’s Thousandth Thought (TTT): In this bi-monthly series, I open myself to you by sharing more personal doubts and reflections. These will mostly be about languages, but you can rest assured I’ll ramble about something else too! If you have a topic you want me to ramble about, I’ll tackle it too! 😉

On top of this, you’ll also get:

  • Inside information on my future plans (products, series, etc.) along with a discount when they are out!

  • My soon-to-be-released eBook about learning languages with Video Games!
