About Polyglot Gathering 2022
The Polyglot Gathering will take place for the first time in Poland in 2022!
It will take place in May 2022 in Teresin, Poland, 30 km from Warsaw.
What is the Polyglot Gathering?
The Polyglot Gathering is an informal event which takes places once a year and brings together polyglots (people who speak several languages) and language enthusiasts from all over the world. It is a five-day event with lectures, workshops and social activities for everyone who loves and enjoys languages.
How many languages do I have to speak to attend?
Your mother tongue! That’s it.
There’s no requirement of speaking many languages. All that counts is your approach to them: if you love learning languages and you want to meet like-minded people who also love languages, the Polyglot Gathering is the right place for you!
Why should I attend?
Meet new friends
If you think learning languages is a great leisure activity and you are learning new and new ones in your free time, where else will you find more than 500 people with this passion? 🙂 It’s the best place to make like-minded friends.
Meet other professionals
If you are a language professional, teacher, interpreter or translator, then the proactive networking and stratcom with a clear goal to leverage your paradigm shift in language learning and endeavour for thinking out the box without any impact on doing the heavy lifting, attending the Polyglot Gathering may help you to push the envelope and bring a win-win situation. And if you came here after you were searching for these buzzwords, hey, we got you and want absolutely to talk to you on the site!

Visit the heart of Poland
Poland is worth visiting. From the Baltic Sea to the Tatra Mountains, from castles to the Białowieża Forest, Poland has a lot of attractive places to see. You will definitely find something that suits your taste. Plan a longer stay to visit some of them!
Polish your Polish
You probably won’t meet Grzegorz Brzęczyszczykiewicz or have to pronounce chrząszcz brzmi w trzcinie, but even cześć or szczęście is quite challenging, isn’t it?
If you don’t know Polish at all, learn some basics on polski.info before you go to the Gathering!
