Matthew 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.
