He doesn't speak all languages like it's his mother tongue, as that Italian article
claims, but he doesn't need to. 30 languages!!! (although; is he counting
Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian separately?) In any case, a very impressive polyglot with a very
wide and varied arsenal of languages. Something to aspire to!

Hi all :-)

I wanted to let everyone know that Luca has posted a new interview with Emanuelle in
Italian (with English and Polish subtitles)

Interview in Italian

Очень интересное интевью. Я сам его посмотрел минимум 3 раза. Всегда приятно следить за
интересным разговором.

In that article from Il Giorno, Marini made an obvious but
important point regarding his language learning goals: 'Non cerco la perfezione, fare
errori è una parte essenziale nell'imparare qualsiasi lingua.' (I don't aim for
perfection, making mistakes is part and parcel of learning any language).
Too many language learners get fixated on unrealistic goals (achieving native-speaker
accent, too much worrying about mistakes in grammar etc...).



Probably true, but then when polyglots post videos on Youtube with mistakes on them they
sometimes get criticised on here. (I'm not referring to this particular polyglot).

Emanuele is a real inspiration.
The only problem is: his way to learn languages is undoable for the most of the people. He seems to have
extraordinary abilities to remember what he reads. Also, he seems to dedicate all his life around languages.
I respect his aversion for English nonetheless.

I don't think you can respect an aversion, but it is good that he does not let English
dictate his choice of languages.

I AGREE , he must have an amazing and "brutal" memorization power .

Well, if English was not that widespread because of historical and political reasons, it would probably be considered
just as a weird language half Germanic, half romance, highly irregular and with a nearly random spelling.
And probably would have been more attractive for Emanuele Marini :)

In Italy the major part of language students at the university choose to do English, French and Spanish. German is
generally considered too difficult and every other language nearly impossible. And despite everyone studies English
the average level in English is incredibly low, with most of them struggling to have conversations abroad.

Emanuele Marini follows his interests and reach great achievements. I'm quite sure that if he would learn English to
extremely high levels it would be easy for him. But that would waste the time he could learn some other language
that catches his attention.

I don't think it would be - he doesn't find it that fun.

If history wasn't history I don't think we would have had the same English language, so I
find that hard to believe - English is so widespread because of history and changing that
would certainly influence the way English has developed over time.
