am Benson Hoi, I speak 6 languages. I am here to suggest tips and tricks to improve your language learning, answer all your language learning related questions and I will interview great language learners to boost your language learning motivation.
I am 31 years old, I was born in Macau, I grew up in London and I now live in Paris France. I have a passion for language learning. I am fully functional in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, French and Japanese, I am quite conversational in Spanish and I am learning many other languages. I am a software developer and process consultant in the banking industry. I have lived here in Paris for about three and a half years with the goal to improve my French. I have lived a couple of months in Japan to improve my Japanese, a month in Kenya to improve my Swahili, a couple of Esperanto events to improve my Esperanto, many long trips over the years to improve my other languages. I love learning a language for the sake of it, but obviously it gives me tremendous joy when I am able to communicate with someone in his or her native language. It’s a bit cliché but I will end this episode with one of my favourite quotes, “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” by Nelson Mandela.
