UBA Young Lawyers Forum invites you to an online meeting with Steve Kaufmann – not even a polyglot, but a hyperglot who speaks dozens of languages. He definitely knows the secrets of their study. And a small spoiler, this is definitely not about jagged words.
Steve is convinced that anyone can learn a new language. You just need to be motivated and have the right method. During our meeting, Steve will share with you his method, which he discovered and perfected over the years, learning new and new languages.
Mykyta Zhukov, Manager at AB ZHUKOV LEGAL FAMILY OFFICE, co-founder of the Legal Design project, Chairman of the UBA Committee on Constitutional Law, Administrative Law and Human Rights, coordinator of UBA Young Lawyers Forum
