The Polyglot Gathering is an informal event which takes places once a year and brings together polyglots (people who speak several languages) and language enthusiasts from all over the world. It is a five-day event with lectures, workshops and social activities for everyone who loves and enjoys languages.

There's no requirement of speaking many languages. All that counts is your approach to them: if you love learning languages and you want to meet like-minded people who also love languages, the Polyglot Gathering is the right place for you!

The Polyglot Gathering 2018 will take place under the auspices of:

  • Martina Lubyová, Minister of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic;
  • Ivo Nesrovnal, mayor of Bratislava;
  • Ferdinand Daňo, rector of the University of Economics in Bratislava;
  • Juraj Droba, chairman of the Bratislava self-governing region.

  • visit practical workshops about less known languages and other language-learning skills
  • talk to other people in whatever language they share (everyone has a nametag with all the languages they wish to speak)
