A secret language
Fabrício, originally from Brazil, was a very curious child. The first moment he was faced with foreign languages was around 2nd or 3rd grade, when a couple of kids who studied in the same class with him started speaking English to each other. Their parents had a lot of money, so they could affort private English lessons. Fabrício felt admiration, but also a little bit of jealousy. He would also like to have a secret language to talk to other classmates and friends.
When everything changed
Fabrício has always been interested in other countries and other cultures, but could only speak some English. Everything started to change when he was 18. He got the chance to take an intensive Italian course in Brazil, a birthday gift from his godmother. His Italian roots spoke louder than anything else, and he found out that he could actually be pretty good at learning languages.
The language journey
Fabrício became a programmer, and kept language learning as a hobby. However, the languages would keep calling him, and when he was 27, he got a job in Europe and hasn’t stopped traveling since then. On this journey, he learned from the world’s leading polyglots how people succeed in learning foreign languages, attended several polyglot conferences and taught himself more then 10 languages. Together with his business partner Lucas, he has tested a large number of learning techniques himself as well.
Fabrício has visited more than 35 countries (and counting!) and besides his native Portuguese, he also learned English, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Polish, German, French, Dutch, Greek, Hebrew, Romanian and also some Croatian, Turkish and Armenian.
The next mission
His current mission is to help people from all over the world to learn languages more effectively in order to expand their world.
