Introducing Gabriel Gelman, expert polyglot and EXPOLINGUA Berlin 2018's Language Ambassador

“Learning a new language may not always be easy, but if you master it, you will realize that it was absolutely worth it!”

Although Gabriel grew up bilingually, he had difficulties learning new languages at school. Meanwhile Gabriel is fluent in six languages and gives tips and tricks to learn languages on his blog Sprachheld. Meet him at the EXPOLINGUA in Berlin on 17th and 18th November and get inspired.

"The visitors of EXPOLINGUA have the opportunity to learn new strategies and methods in these presentations in order to learn foreign languages more effectively and quickly. The numerous exhibitors also show how they can achieve this effect with various apps, language books or a language course. This is an excellent opportunity that every language enthusiast should take advantage of!"
