It is not an uncommon thing to speak several languages fluently  – people do that all the PeopleAroundWorldtime all around the world. Many of them from  small African or Asian communities where it is customary to hear several languages all around you, so you pick up a few them just to get by. This site will concentrate however on multilingual – in some cases even bilingual – people who we can know by name. People who decided for whatever reason to expand their language skills beyond the mother tongue – and possibly another domestic language – and who exemplify the spirit of a polyglot . It is fun to know of them, read how they do/did it – and listen to them!
