What did the participants say after the previous editions?

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 the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is a country that should be on your travel radar. With its charming historic towns, picturesque villages, and diverse natural beauty, this Central European gem offers a wide range of attractions and experiences. There’s something for everyone here, so make sure to extend your visit and explore the unique and captivating facets of the Czech Republic!

Czech out your Czech

Exploring the Czech language in Prague is a rewarding experience. While mastering strč prst skrz krk may not be a daily necessity, even everyday words like čtvrtek (Thursday) and zmrzlina (ice cream) might be quite challenging! Learning Czech opens doors to authentic interactions, cultural insights, and a deeper connection with the vibrant atmosphere of Prague.

Travel around

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