    • my fa

sounds like fun.
i'm from denmark and besides danish i speak german and english, also e few words in french and spanish.
but it's allways fun to learn new phrases i other languages, as minimum how to politely say hello and goodbye.
so if theres no scheduling problems and i can find you i'll be looking in too.

@Reshi I started Esperanto on Duolingo, I think I want to learn it properly now, especially since I meet some people talking Esperanto. ^^

Officially, the Polyglot Corner is supposed to take place at 16:00 on Saturday. But it overlaps many other interesting events, including dance competition.

I've contacted the orgs, I'll try to move it to a morning time instead. Say, 11:30. Barely any events there, so anybody will be able to attend.

Update. Unfortunately, the event cannot be moved in the official schedule any more.

Guess the only thing we can do now is to move it ourselves or not move at all. What do you think?

Beware that, if you move it someones will not get the information and wait for your panel at the wrong time.

I think it would be better to leave it as-is then. It will take place on Saturday at 16:00, as scheduled.

I will try to be more consistent with my event requests in 2017, so they wouldn't overlap with other events.

Yeah it is sure difficult to not overlap stuff, I would also have been interested in the Anthropomorphic Anatomy panel the same time. ^^ But I do prefer the polyglot panel, so I will come there.

I'm so looking forward to this.  I speak English and very little, very bad high school German.  I've started French online, but I love languages and can't wait to meet everyone. :)

As the Anthropomorphic Anatomy panel is a Supersponsor event...I stay with the Polyglot one instead.

I think this panel went really good. We had been sitting'n'chatting for 2 hours and still could not get enough.
Many thanks to everyone who came, and I'm open to your feedback.

I think I'll be making more of these at the upcoming cons.

Yeah it was really interesting, even though I had to go earlier. ^^ Hope next year this will be again.

Yep, it was fun :)

Next year let's try to squeeze the language collection & intro bit a bit more, so more time is left for everything else.  Maybe those of us who think about going next year could try to prepare with something similar as what Amaroq had, a badge with languages.

Yeah a badge would be a good idea, we can have paper ready, so people forgetting it, can write down and wear that then maybe.
If we want to have a statistic again, which languages are popular, maybe we can just write down everyone themselves, which languages they are native of, fluent or learning.
