EC Boston asks…

Did you know that the translator for the European Commission speaks 32 different languages fluently? Yes, you read that right- 32!

Ioannis Ikonomou, a native Greek speaker, also speaks English, Turkish, Arabic, German, and Chinese.

His advice to language learners? “You just have to immerse yourself in the language and the culture. It’s easier now with the internet and satellite television.”
