Learning a new language

Hello! Hallo! ¡Hola! Olá! Hej då! Ahoj!

I decided to write this post, where I gather methods and secrets from polyglots and language learners from all around the world (mainly TED talks, as for now), and share this with you.

1 - Lýdia Machová --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_XVt5rdpFY

In the video above, Lýdia Machová (9 languages) explains us how she and fellow polyglots learn languages, and how they all have some common factors.

2 - Sid Efromovich --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WLHr1_EVtQ

In the video above, Sid Efromovich (7 languages) shares 5 thoughtful techniques that we can apply when learning a new language.

3 - Lera Boroditsky --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKK7wGAYP6k

The video above isn't exactly about the process of language learning, but I personally find it really interesting.

5 - Suggested by Songve, youtube.com/watch?v=jbNv8zJyl38 | Daniel Tammet and our adventure into Icelandic

I will be updating this list and accepting requests. Thanks for reading/watching!

Extra 1: a channel on YouTube by the name Olly Richards (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSSLq4KYuztsj6ch2RbqoIg) has a series called Principles of Language Learning with Lydia Machova, that is also rather interesting.

Edit: He also has tons of other language related videos that are worth watching.

Here's a language blog where a bunch of different polyglots talk about language stuff. I know that's vague, but they have pretty much everything, including even more resources for learning.
