I found an interesting article about language. Vladimir, a native of Slovak, who is living in Taiwan, shares his experience in 11 languages in different level of fluency.
Forever a student: My multilingual recording in 11 languages: Hello everyone. After a lot of consideration, I have decided to give it a shot and record myself trying to speak in the languages that I have learned.
I was a bit afraid to do so, because while in general and in my experience people find polyglottery interesting, to some it might seem that people who do similar recordings or videos are show offs and attention seekers, which really wasn't my intention. I only wanted to join the community of people who have done so before and babble along in the languages that I speak for anyone who'd be interested in listening to my specific language combinations. I was hesitating for a long time and only until there were dozens of people out there with similar blogs, recordings or videos, I decided to give it a shot myself. This way I didn't feel like I was standing out too much and felt like just one of many.
