Alexander Arguelles

September 1, 2012
Hello my friends.
Most people learn 1 or 2 foreign languages, because they need to know them for business or because of private reasons (or for school). But there are other ones who are downright obsessed with language learning. One of them is Alexander Arguelles. He was the first one of the so called hyperpolyglots  that I discovered on the internet.
Alexander Arguelles counts 38 modern, old and ancient languages in which he is able to read at least 90% of all words (list from September 2011) on his homepage.
He is also pretty famous on the Youtube-community for his videos, especially the videos about the shadowing-technique and about the characteristics of different written languages.
