Richard Simcott has studied languages for over 30 years and has a 16-language video on YouTube although he speaks over 30 languages. He has run the SpeakingFluently blog since 2011 back when the polyglot community was still new.  He has been consulted for articles in The Times and Forbes on language learning and was also described as one of the most multilingual people from The United Kingdom by HarperCollins. He is considered to be one of the biggest players in the polyglot community.
We talk about the upcoming Polyglot workshop which he will be hosting in Berlin at the end of March. There he helps facilitate language learning and give specific tips to individuals and their sticking points. Although he says most language learning questions are similar, he also says that it can still be reassuring to receive personal advice. Finally he talks about designing your life around language learning and how he speaks 5 languages during daily activities.
