This Funzing Experience:

Have you ever wanted to learn a new language? Pero el pensamiento de aprender un idioma sería demasiado difícil, or لا أعرف من أين نبدأ, or perhaps you thought あなたは時間がないだろう. Join polyglot, Matthew Youlden, for an insightful talk on the benefits of picking up a new tongue, and how to do it with ease and fun.

Languages are truly fascinating but when it comes to learning them, stereotypically they’re not something we excel at as a nation. With English as the ‘global language’, some out there may even say other languages aren’t even necessary.

In this talk, Matthew would like to show you the complete opposite - that languages are indeed very much a part of our daily lives, and why we should and can learn them, proving that even the most monolingual Anglo is not only able to learn a new language with ease but also have a lot of fun along the way!

Venue: Trapeze

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
