The Polyglot Conference 2019 in Fukuoka will bring together language enthusiasts from around the world, allowing them to meet other language enthusiasts and focus on language in a way that most of us are unable to do in our daily lives.
The main conference consists of two days of language talks on diverse subjects such as the latest research into polyglots and polyglottery, workplace applications of polyglot skills, language families or individual languages, linguistics, new learning resources and techniques, and language themes relating to the history and culture of the host city.
This year will we have a day on Friday 18th October dedicated to exploring language exchange to spend time together, talking about subjects of interest in the languages we choose to use. It’s a time for all language enthusiasts to spend time with kindred spirits.
At the Polyglot Conference you will be able to speak in numerous foreign languages if you are so inclined. You can meet professionals and entrepreneurs and get the support needed to advance your own language-learning. You can enjoy the company of others who share your linguistic interests. In off hours, we invite you to enjoy and learn about Japan and the wider region, a fascinating country with a cultural and linguistic heritage unique to the islands. The interaction between Japan and other Asian cultures and languages, especially the script and crossover of words from diverse language groups never cease to fascinate you.
Attendees have described their experience at our previous events, in Budapest, Novi Sad, New York, Thessaloniki, Reykjavik and Ljubljana as deeply inspiring, moving, even life-changing. Come find out for yourself this year in Fukuoka, Japan!
