Luca posted a new video. Another conversation recorded in Poznań. Starring: Luca Lampariello, Richard Simcott and Susanna Zaraysky. Highly recommended.

How and why polyglots don't confuse languages

The only two languages I can rate are his English and Spanish. Both are very good, close to native-level, either a C1 or C2.

His skills are no parlor trick either, as he spends like 2 years on each language. It's hard work and he definitely puts in the time and effort to know his languages so well.

However, I think there is too much hyperbole on this site about foreigners speaking "perfect." I don't think I would ever mistake him for a native speaker in English or Spanish, though there is nothing wrong with that. IMHO, perfection shouldn't be the goal, as it would take literally like 10-20 years to reach a VERY high level in a foreign language.

In Spanish he spoke very fluidly and talking to him would be effortless. His accent was particularly good, sounds Spanish. That said, I noticed one or two mistakes with the imperfect vs. Preterite, I believe. Another thing was he said "caseta" to refer to "cassette." "Caseta" actually means kennel, so while an easily made mistake, it is still an error. Also he said "comunicar" instead of "comunicarse". Not perfect as some would say but VERY good and he should be bvery proud of his abilities!

I don't speak any of the Romance languages besides French, but I did listen to the
Italian and the Portuguese. He seems to speak most of his languages well (and
surprisingly Jens seems least confident in English...)
