This year we are taking the Polyglot Conference to Fukuoka, Japan. Fukuoka has a very authentic Japanese feel to it and many interesting and exciting places to explore for participants to really experience its people and culture. We will celebrate our host country’s languages and cultures, as well as the wider region too. We will also be joining the UN’s goal of making 2019 all about being the “International Year of Indigenous Languages.”. The Polyglot Conference brings together people using language in business, academia and for the pure enjoyment of learning languages to learn from each other.
