InstructorMatthew Youlden is a man of many words - a linguist, lecturer, translator, interpreter, and polyglot from Manchester, England. Languages have shaped Matthew’s entire life, beginning when he first started learning languages as a child, to now working as a language specialist at Babbel, the industry’s leading language-learning app. At the age of eight, Matthew and his twin brother decided to learn Spanish for recreational fun, armed with only a phrasebook and a dictionary. After seeing how quickly they picked it up, the brothers went on to dedicate their lives to learning new languages. Today, Matthew and his brother have achieved world-wide fame as “The Superpolyglotbros,” using online videos to showcase their abilities to speak in over 20 languages.
