You can now watch my You Tube interview about language learning and polyglottery. It is spoken in 4 languages (English - Deutsch - Nederlands - Esperanto).

Date of recording: 30 May 2009.

It was great fun to prepare the interview and do the recording. My Dutch friend interviewed me and was my technical team manager.

Dutch! Wow! To me you sounded just like a native Dutch person...

I had never heard spoken Esperanto and it was great to be able to hear it for the first time! I could understand quite a lot of what you were saying just from knowing bits of other languages. I really like Esperanto and it's such a pity we can't use it as a language for everyone to communicate in across the EU. It's really genius.

Thanks for posting the video it was great to watch!

EDIT: I have a question actually - I wonder if you could explain a bit about how and when you decided to learn Esperanto. (I think you touched the subject in the video but didn't go into detail. What motivated you to learn this, and why should somebody consider learning it?)   What's the situation with accents in Esperanto? You and the interviewer had different "accents" I think?!

I'm glad we don't. People in China would think we're a bunch of weirdos ^_^.

Thank you for your supportive comments on my first video recording, Cordelia and Seljak!

Cordelia, you have some interesting questions on my learning of Esperanto, I will file them away for my next You Tube video. We both are very enthousiast about the project and we think about recording a second multilingual video in August/September. What I still don't know is, whether a friend of mine who speaks Italian and French fluently, is willing to inteview me in Italian and French.

I've given the You Tube link also to family, friends and penfriends. I have foreign penfriends with whom I have been corresponding for more than 10 years and I have never met them, so on such a video they see and hear me for the first time and as it seems they very much appreciate this.

Fasulye, thank you very much for the video. I really enjoyed it thoroughly, although I couldn't make out much of Esperanto and Dutch sections. However, it was rather suprising to find that I could understand some words in Dutch without having ever studied the language.

Oh.. and I could understand your German parts quite well.. :) I guess that's a milestone for me.. XD

That's excellent that you could understand my native German. It shows that you are able to understand the authentic language. Some Dutch words are very similar to German because both languages are very closely related. People with a previous knowledge of German will have an advantage to learn Dutch.

I am planning to record a second video in August/September, I see that it will be useful to include some German in it.
