Do polyglots ever mess up
their tenses or get their
grammar wrong? How do they manage to speak
so many languages?
British filmmaker Catherine Nelson-Pollard
was brought up in a monolingual family in the North of England in the '60s and
when she moved to Nyon in Switzerland she found herself surrounded by multilingual friends
and colleagues. In awe of all the polyglots around her, she explores their world and interviews them…in English.
