polyglot (pälē glät)

Happy New Year! My New Year’s resolution is to continue to improve my Hindi using Rosetta Stone. I have a strong interest in learning Hindi because I have lots of family in India. Hindi is one of the official languages of India and is spoken by nearly 500 million people. Some other languages I would like to learn are Mandarin, Japanese, German, and Telugu.

I hope to become a polyglot one day. A polyglot is a person who knows many different languages. Polyglot comes from the Greek roots poly- meaning many and glot meaning tongue, language.

Are there any languages you would like to learn?  Are any of you polyglots? If so, what languages do you speak?
