Meet Matthew Youlden:
Matthew Youlden is a linguist, translator, interpreter, lecturer and polyglot hailing from Manchester, England.
Languages have shaped Matthew's entire life, from learning languages together with his twin brother (aka the 'Superpolyglotbros') to studying translation studies and linguistics at Humboldt University of Berlin and to working as a professional language consultant and lecturer.
Whilst working as Language Ambassador for the language-learning app Babbel he played a crucial role in promoting the benefits of language learning as well as developing and expanding its platform.
Passionate about all things related to languages and language learning, Matthew has written for publications including The Guardian and The Huffington Post, and makes regular appearances as an expert or guest panelist on television shows, both in Germany where he is currently based, and internationally. He has appeared as a professional speaker at organisations such as Google, Apple and TEDx covering topics from language learning, multilingualism and languages and marketing.
Matthew’s mission is to share his joy of languages, and he is a true believer that anyone, with the right tools and a healthy dose of fun, can learn a new language.
