Hello, everyone! My name is Lee Morrow and i am a language student based in Aberdeen, Scotland. Welcome to my blog! I started learning languages intensely about six years ago. Languages have taken over my life and languages are now my main passion. Because of this, i have decided to create a blog where i talk about all things languages. Of course, this blog will not be all about me. This blog has been designed to have guest writers, language learning news updates, stories and my general travel updates.

I travel a lot also. This is a huge reason as to why i learn languages. they always come in handy. Whether it’s Arabic, Mandarin, Hungarian, etc. I will always find a use for the languages i am learning.

To finish up, i should probably answer the question that a lot of people are thinking. “Lee, how many languages do you speak?” Well, i don’t like to say “I speak X number of languages”. However, i have studied over thirty languages but i have dropped roughly nine languages and i can converse in roughly twenty one languages. All of the languages that i speak are at different levels of fluency. But, why do i love languages so much? I love languages because i love many different cultures from all around the world. Learning a language really opens up doors into culture. I also love being able to communicate with people all over the world just by walking through the streets of Aberdeen or by hoping on a plane.

I hope this gave you a brief introduction as to who i am. I will hopefully see you around on my blog. See you soon!

  1. Hi I am a concerned that you are lying about these languages I will need a video of you saying every word in an Oxford Concise Dictionary in each of these languages or I’ll be depressed. And there is no way you know 20 languages and can speak them fluently. stop lying. And if you did It would be a record for someone your age and only one person in the world has done this search it up.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I am a native English speaker and i don’t know every word in the oxford dictionary. Nor does any other polyglots. I have said before, i don’t speak all of them fluently. I have said ‘To different degrees of fluency’. This being from any levels between beginner and advanced. I have given talks about my language learning journey, i have made videos about languages and i have been featured on podcasts about it from people such as Tyler Lovence. Therefore, you are wrong. You have made up fake information that you did not read properly. If you’re trying to take the piss please stop. Thank you again for your comment and i hoe this helped.

    1. Hello, Mike. Thank you for your comment. Recently, i have been looking into more Mandarin resources as i would like to pick it back up again after a very hectic year. I’ve always really enjoyed using ‘Teach Yourself Chinese’. It gives you great, practical conversations and in depth answers to questions. The only downside to it is that they haven’t written the conversations with the Chinese characters. The book itself does teach Mandarin Chinese so, please, don’t let that put you off. I love to watch a lot of courses on YouTube. I quite like learning with a channel called ‘Learn Chinese with ChineseClass101.com’. It is a website and a YouTube channel which features lots of vocabulary, grammar, etc. I love this resource a lot! I hope any of these might help you! Bye for now, Lee.

  2. I watched your new YouTube video about learning Dutch. I’m wondering: when you are pronouncing and repeating new words aloud, what sorts of things are you thinking about or visualizing to help remember the word, long-term? For “hello,” I can imagine visualizing yourself giving a greeting to a Dutch person you know or saw photographed, but when words are so similar or have multiple meanings, do you have mental techniques to help keep everything distinct and ready for future recall?

    Thanks, this is all interesting because so many of those I know have a knack for different kinds of knowledge such as math, English, philosophy, politics, chess… but not polylingualism. I had long wondered what techniques might allow keeping track of so many languages, both similar and different.

  3. I just came here from your video — amazing you’ve got to B2 level of Spanish after one week! It’s also incredible, because despite having studied Russian for over a year, I’m barely an A1. So this is super cool!

    1. Hello Ophelia! I really don’t have a B2 level. That’s a mistake. I’m lucky if i’m an A1. It’s a lot of effort however, Benny’s book is fantastic and it’s really helping! You’re Russian is surely better than A1. I can tell and i don’t even speak Russian.

  4. Really cool story, Lee. Enjoyed reading through your blog and watching some of your videos. Great to see another young polyglot out there. Would love to see a video of you speaking your languages go up on your channel. Keep up the good work. I will follow it with interest.

    All best,
    Max Hartle
