Extreme multi-lingual

Feb 22, 2012 | Language, Translation

Many of our talented translators are multi-lingual and it is never less than impressive, to say the least. But 20 year old Oxford University student, Alex Rawlings, has taken the proverbial biscuit with a total of 11 languages, and still going!

Alex has just won a national competition to find the UK’s most multi-lingual student, speaking English, Greek, German, Spanish, Russian, Dutch, Afrikaans, French, Hebrew, Catalan and Italian. And he’s still learning – Arabic is next!

So, what is the secret to his success? He just loves learning languages and finds the best way is to talk the talk, rather than read the book… And, in his words “The more you learn, the easier it gets. Honestly.”
