I speak four of the languages you mentioned above (which are Italian English, German and Spanish), and I think that, apart from having a very good accent for all of them, you just have like a gift for learning foreign languages! Keep doing that, in my opinion you're really good😉

Rick Jones (2 months ago)
Dear Max, I very much appreciated your presentation. The only language that you and I have in common besides English is Spanish. I was very impressed with your Spanish. Your grammar in general was good as well as your pronunciation. It was very clear and understandable which is a lot more than I can say for a lot of native speakers of Spanish. LOL ! I have studied French, German and Italian previously but not at a very high level. Your French seems impeccable and your accent was suburb. I was quite impressed with your grasp of Indonesian. I was hoping that you would tell us something about the challenge. I have been told that the grammar is simple but the vocabulary is quite foreign. I speak Russian and Czech and understand Slovak and Polish. I would highly recommend to you a Slavic language. It is a challenge to an English speaker person like yourself. The grammar has a case system like Latin but no articles like German. Hooray ! The lexicon is a challenge for the beginner as well as pronunciation. But it is quite worthwhile. Hopefully, in future videos you can share your language learning strategies. I am quite sure that you have a lot to teach us.
English with Max (2 months ago)
Hi Rick, Thank you very much for your lovely comment! Yes, you're right. Indonesian grammar is relatively simple (although it gets more complicated in formal language), but the vocabulary is quite different compared to the other languages I've learnt. I would love to study a Slavic language at some stage... The only difficulty is finding the time! In my playlist "English Tips" I share a few strategies for language learning. I hope to add to it in the future!

Nossa, nossa! Hahaha.Our stories are quite similar. Because I loved languages, I was aiming at interpreting for a while. Then I realized that headache interpretin causes. I don’t function in two languages. One or the other. My languages are French and Spanish (schooled), Italian, Japanese, 2 ounces of Brazilian pre-Olympics, but mostly spoke Spanugese and a sprinkle of Korean.

It depends on how intensely you study and what level you're aiming for. If you study consistently and are able to practise your speaking on a regular basis, I'd say you could get quite fluent in 3 years or so. But like I said, it depends on various factors.

Hola ! Ton français est super impressionnant ! Me gusteria hablar un idioma estranjero tan bien como hablas el francés. Ma il mi livello non é tanto buono... neanche in spagnolo che é la lingua straniera più facile da parlare per me. (until now... or maybe is it English ?... what's sure is that I still have a lot to learn in all those languages...) Und meine nächste Zeil ist deutsch zu lernen ! Jetzt kann ich einzigen Worter sagen aber es ist schwierig für mich wenn ich kein Zeit zu denken habe : bref j'ai pas encore assez de vocabulaire ni assez de connaissances pour pouvoir parler allemand... Ton accent français - encore une fois - m'a époustouflée ! For Italian you probably know Sgrammaticando. I personally listen to "breaking Italy" : the language level is quite high and I think I improved my Italian with this channel. Do you know any YouTube channel in German that could be useful to me ?
English with Max (3 months ago)
Merci beaucoup ! :) Yes, I know Sgrammaticando, but not Breaking Italy. And since filming this video I've discovered Fun and Easy Italian :). For German you could try the channel Get Germanized. Some of his videos are in English, but a lot are in German, and I don't think he speaks too fast. All the best with it!

Your Italian is good! If I heard you but didn't know you I'd say that you're Spanish or Portuguese and that's good because a Latin accent is better than a Germanic one if you're speaking Italian. Keep it up! Thank you so much for making this video. I'm trying to learn Russian while improving my English. :-)

This was really cool. I envy you! Working with learning deutsch at the moment and it is quite easy as i already am fluent in norwegian and english which are both germanic languages. The grammer is killing me though, irregular and regular verbs along with how every word has an article that changes and how the verb comes at the end. My father is lebanese so i already speak arabic, can't wait to finish german so i can move onto spanish and japanese!

Thank you for your comment! I can't think of any specific advice for that. Perhaps you need to decide which language(s) is/are more important and focus more on that/those. Otherwise just make sure that you dedicate some time to each language, and that you use separate notebooks for each language. Good luck!

Would you say its okay to learn a language that doesnt have a lot of speakers gloablly and most people of the country speak English? I really enjoy learning Swedish. Its just such a beautiful language. The music is really good, the pitch accent is so lovely and best of all its a lot like English. But so many swedes speak English really well already? Is it worth it to continue studying it? Or should I put my time into other languages. Also I just really love your fluency with each language. It inspires me to become a polyglot one day. Its nice to see you do what you love and share with us on youtube. 💕
English with Max (4 months ago)
Thank you very much :). I'm afraid there's no right or wrong answer to your question. People learn languages for a myriad of reasons. IMO, yes, Swedish probably isn't the most useful language to learn in the world (unless you plan on living in Sweden for an extended period of time), but if you enjoy it, then why stop? The only time I might suggest that someone stop learning a language or put it on pause would be if they really needed to learn a different language (for work, study, migration, etc.). In that case, the language that you're learning "just for fun" might interfere with the language that's more vital, or at least, use up time that might be "better" spent. But if you don't need to learn any other language, then go for it!
Becky Yan (4 months ago)
Hi Max, I speak Chinese as a native speaker, and learnt English and Japanese. I also want to be a conference interpreter hahah. I admire multi-languages speakers, but could you tell me how you managed to maintain these language levels if you’re not exposed in such language environments?
English with Max (4 months ago)
Hi Becky, thanks for your comment! It's cool that you want to be a conference interpreter :D. To be honest, all my languages have suffered since I've been back in Australia. And when I was in France, my German suffered (at least my spoken German), and my French suffered when I went to Spain, etc. It's nearly impossible to keep them all at the same level all of the time! However, I still sometimes read, watch or listen to things in my various languages, and I think by doing that (even if it's not every day or even every week, and it's sometimes only small amounts), I'm able to not forget them entirely. I hope that helps!

Hello Can you give me some tips or tools to learn German faster and be fluent
English with Max (4 months ago)
I think mastering German grammar is important. And not just learning the rules, but doing drills until they really stick and become automatic. I know some people nowadays think that's old-fashioned and inefficient, but it worked for me. It would also be a good idea to get a speaking partner - they're quite easy to find online these days, particularly if you're a native English speaker! Good luck!

English with Max (4 months ago)
Gracias! I mix them up sometimes ;). Particularly when the languages sound similar (like Spanish and Italian). I don't think there's a special method for not mixing them up. I think you just need to concentrate when you speak :D.

English with Max (5 months ago)
Wow, it's amazing that you're learning all of those languages at the same time! All the best!
That's fantastic! How did you manage to get French, German and Spanish pronunciation like native speaker?
English with Max (5 months ago)
Thank you for the compliment, but I don't sound exactly like a native speaker in any of the languages ;). However, I'm a perfectionist, so when I learn a new word, I normally say it out loud several times, often imitating the audio on something like Google Translate or a dictionary like this: https://www.dict.cc/ For English, this is a good one: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/ I also try to pay attention to the rhythm of a language. I hope that helps!
akkster90 (5 months ago)
I speak basic Spanish but would love to get to a high level or speak fluent in Spanish Italian Portuguese.. French and German I find slightly harder to learn? Did you find German and French harder to learn.? Also how long did it take for you to be able to speak fluently in each language e.g Spanish French and German. ?
akkster90 (5 months ago)
+English with Max thank you
English with Max (5 months ago)
Yes, I think French and German are harder than Spanish and Italian for native English speakers, but they were the first languages I formally learnt, so I didn't really think about it at the time :D. As for how long... it's very hard to say, because I had periods when I was learning quite intensively, and periods when I was hardly doing anything with a particular language. E.g. I started learning German after French, but I got fluent in it faster because I lived in Germany before I lived in France. And now my French is better because I lived in France for longer. In any case, in general it takes people a few years to get fluent. No one goes from zero to fluent in six months unless they're studying incredibly intensively or they're a savant. ;)
