Lessons from a 7 (well, 8) language polygot

I think the reason many users are on Duolingo is to be able to speak multiple languages.

This guy speaks 7 language, and ASL (American Sign Language).

Here is a TEDx talk (in English)

And an AmA (Ask me Anything) on Reddit:

TL;DR: The guy says he has a poor memory, had trouble in school to learn languages but then easily learned multiple languages when he tried USING the languages with others.

He also wrote a review about Duolingo.

TL;DR: He has a lot of positive things to say about Duolingo and a C2 level and professional Spanish translator. Some of his constructive feedback is the same as a few of Duolingo's power users.
