Alex Rawlings the Britain’s most multilingual student – Speaking Spanish
Alex Rawlings was considered the Britain’s most multilingual student. He studyied German and Russian at Oxford University and has been blogging about language learning at rawlangs.com and Facebook page, as well as for Memrise. Since graduating, Alex has been working as a language teacher and coach for individuals and groups. Alex is regularly invited to talk at language events around the world as a motivational speaker.In February 2012 he was named Britain’s most multilingual student after winning a nationwide competition run by publishers Harper Collins, in which he was tested for fluency in eleven different languages. This story was picked up by news agencies worldwide, and he was interviewed by television, newspaper and radio stations across the world, most notably by the BBC. Since then I have regularly partaken in media campaigns to support the cause of language learning in the UK, including The Guardian, BBC Breakfast, Channel 5 News, The Independent, The Evening Standard, and Voice of Russia UK.
In this interview we talked about:
- The Polyglot Workshops in details;
- Some ideias about the Polyglot Conference;
- Alex’s Strategies to learn a language;
- Pimsleur, Michel Thomas, Assimil, Teach Yourself or Colloquial? Which is the best in Alex’s opinion?
- Is there a strategy to change from one language to the another;
- and much, much more.
As far as I know this is the first interview that Alex gives in Spanish, and we are looking forward to meet him in person to the next interview in Portuguese, during the workshop in Belo Horizonte conduced by Alex Rawlings, Richard Simcott and me, Jimmy Mello.
