and choose a language to study in the experiment was not easy. The organizers settled on the Romanian
, because he has similarities with those languages which are already speaking polyglots: French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese.
So the training took place as efficiently as possible, to each polyglot was assigned a personal tutor — media in Romanian language. After 60 minutes, the students demonstrated their ability to speak without a dictionary and translator. We Website
delighted with the result. And you?
