We often hear about people who discovered language learning at a very young age, but not every learner has that exact story. My guest today Kalle only discovered it as an adult, and has since become completely addicted.

Kalle Wångstedt

Kalle is a good friend of mine from Sweden, whom I had the great pleasure of doing a talk about Scandinavian languages in Slovakia lately. You can find this talk on YouTube later.

I've also spent a lot of time with Kalle at the gathering, both in Berlin and in Bratislava and I really like his approach to language learning and life in general.

What particularly interested in to Kalle's story is that he didn't really do language learning as a young adult and only discovered it later in life – much like my own story. I had the fortune of learning both English and German as a youngster, but it was not really by choice – more by fate.

So we compare notes on this experience, and how to learn languages as an adult and talk about how awesome it is to go to polyglot events.

Note: This interview was recorded BEFORE the gathering in Bratislava. Apologies for the delay.

In this episode:

  • How Kalle discovered language learning as an adult
  • How he attacks learning anguages
  • Why he attends conferences/gatherings and why it helps him stay motivated
  • And much more!
