Speaking fluently, with Luca Lampariello
In our first episode, we chat with Luca Lampariello, a renowned polyglot who has achieved high levels of fluency in 13 languages. We discuss:
- Preparing to speak – when should we speak, and is there anything we can and should do in advance?
- Keys to fluency – is fluency a skill that we can develop, or a representation of our overall level of language?
- Practising speaking – how can we practise, other than simply speaking with people? Is there anything else we can do?
- Speaking as a performance – how can you deal with pressures of the moment, and to what extent is speaking an act of “performance”?
- The mindset of fluency
