Polyglot Gathering 2024

Hello, all 👋 If you would like to meet me in person and participate in an awesome conference, come join me at Polyglot Gathering. I’ll be there distributing some Polygloss stickers, chatting about language learning, and running some marketing promos. Speaking of marketing promos, if you are currently a Czech learner and Polygloss user, I have something cool to announce. Share about Polygloss on social media or other websites recommending the app to other learners and I’ll give you one month of free premium + you’ll enter a raffle for a secret personalized hand-made gift 🎁 Make sure I see the post (either tag @polyglossapp or email me the link). I hope to see you there!

Where: Prague, Czech Republic

When: May 15 to May 19, 2024.
