What did the participants say in 2020?

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!

Travel around

Travel around Central and Eastern Europe: Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania are all in the Schengen Area, and there are no extra costs for phone and data roaming, which makes travelling much easier.

Cò tha a' cur an tachartais seo air dòigh?

B' iad stèidheadairean an tachartais agus luchd-eagrachaidh nan ciad trì eagran ann 2014-2016 Judith Meyer, Chuck Smith agus Martin Sawitzki. An dèidh sin, ghluais Criunneachadh nan Iol-chainnteach à Berlin sa Ghearmailt gu Brataslàbha ann an Slobhàgia agus thathar ga chur air dòigh bhon uair sin mar bhuidheann neo-phrothaide Education@Internet (E@I), agus Peter Baláž mar phrìomh neach-eagrachaidh an cois le buill eile sgioba sònraichte na buidhne de dh'iol-chainntich is luchd-eagrachaidh.

Leughaibh an còrr mun sgioba

'S e sgioba eadar-nàiseanta a th' ann an Education@Internet (E@I), a bhios a' toirt a-mach phròiseactan air loidhne agus a thàinig gu bith an toiseach ann an 1999. Air sgàth eòlas an sgioba, chuireadh E@I air dòigh reachdail ann an 2005 mar bhuidheann òigridh neo-phoilitigeach is neo-riaghaltasach.

'S e a tha fa-near do E@I ach saoghal ann an co-sheirm agus sìths, anns am bi gach saoranach a' conaltradh air feadh an t-saoghail le soirbheas is luaths.

Thathar a' toirt a-mach gnìomhachdan na buidhne seo ann an co-rèir ris an amas seo, agus le cuideachadh bho bhuidhinn eadar-nàiseanta de shaor-thoilich. Am measg nan tachartasan seo tha cur air dòigh is cumail taic ri pròiseactan a bhios a' sgaoileadh cho cudromach is feumail 's a tha conaltradh eadar-nàiseanta gun bhacadh.

Ma tha obair na buidhne seo a' còrdadh ribh a thaobh Cruinneachadh nan Iol-chainnteach agus nam bu toil leibh cur ri coileanadh a gnìomhachdan, nach beachdaich sibh air taic airgid a thoirt dhi gus cuideachadh le bhith a' dèanamh cinnteach gum mair a pròiseactan.
