Greetings! My name is Spencer and I recently had the pleasure to speak with author Michael Erard about his recently published book, "Babel No More: The Search for the World's Most Extraordinary Language Learners." If you are curious in learning more about hyperpolyglotism then this Q&A might be interesting for you. http://gengo.com/about-us/blog/interview-with-author-michael-erard/


On a side note, if you have any questions of your own, please feel free to add them to the comments section of the post and Michael will see themicon_wink.gif

Best,

Wow! Jul 27, 2012

Mezzofanti must have been an absolutely extraordinary person. According to the German entry in Wikipedia he supposedly understood 57 languages and spoke 38. Wow!
