Luca Lampariello speaks 14 languages! Elle caught up with the Italian polyglot for the LingQ Podcast and asked him about his methods, inspiration and what’s next for his website and YouTube channel.
LingQ was instrumental for my language learning. When I began studying French, I would do cold reads of various stories. I knew NOTHING except “merci”, “bonjour,” and that’s about it. I remember reading the stories and being clueless as to the vocabulary. Through these cold reads I began to assess the language. It’s something I often do with other languages. I did it with Italian and Portuguese, and after French, with Catalan, Norwegian, and Indonesian.
I’m going to show you how you can import your favorite YouTube content into LingQ so you can actually study better. As you can see here, this is my imported YouTube video in my LingQ account. I can watch the video scroll along the transcriptions here and save my new words.
