Tokyo Podcast continues its Japanese Language Series by talking to Yushi Shinoda a.k.a Uncle Polyglot. Yushi is a Japanese polyglot who speaks and writes 5 languages. Growing up in Japan Yushi developed an interest in languages at a very young age when he started studying English and Chinese at the same time. An opportunity to study in China cemented his love of languages and he has been adding to his linguistic repertoire ever since. Yushi joins us to talk about how he is able to learn so many languages and offers suggestions on how we can improve our language learning ability.
