Welcome to the Polyglot Project

Welcome to the Polyglot Project
The idea behind the Polyglot Project is simple. We want to help you get fluent in whatever language you're trying to learn. And we believe the best way to get fluent in a foreign language is to put in time exposing yourself to that language as it's actually used by native speakers. Here, we've pulled together a library of foreign language content for you to work with, starting with classic literature from all over the world. You can work on your Italian by reading Dante's Inferno, or your Spanish by reading Don Quijote, or choose any other language and learn it from the best writers that language has to offer. Dive in to the library to start learning

“The Apologizer” Alain meditates on the navel It was the month of June, the morning sun was emerging from the clouds, and Alain was walking slowly down a Paris street. He observed the young girls: every one of them showed her naked navel between trousers belted very low and a T-shirt cut very short. He was captivated, captivated and even disturbed: it was as if their seductive power resided no longer in their thighs, their buttocks, or their breasts but in that small round hole at the center of the body.

Science Reveals Something Surprising About People Who Speak More Than One Lan... Learning more than one language isn't just good for traveling — it may actually make you better at performing tasks that aren't even related to linguistics. A recent study in Brain and Language by University of Washington researchers generated this somewhat surprising statistic: Bilingual people are about half a second faster at executing novel instructions, like "add 1 to x, divide y by 2, and sum the results" than their monolingual cousins. In short, the approximately 20% of Americans who are bilingual may tend to have better executive functioning — the network of cognitive processes involved in reasoning and problem solving, among others — than the rest of us.
