Meet Guy Sharett Who Speaks 7 Languages

Guy Sharett started his love of languages as a child.

Growing up, Guy used to correct his parents on proper grammar. Surprisingly, they didn’t throw him out of the house...

Today, Guy’s passion of language learning has led to a podcast with 1+ MILLION downloads.

Personally, I love his podcast StreetWise Hebrew. It’s short, funny, and fascinating — and they talk about sex words. 😛

During my recent trip to Israel, I got to sit down with Guy.

We had a 15-minute conversation with 3 main takeaways:

  1. How Guy turned his moonlighting passion into a full-time business
  2. How the f he knows 7 languages — plus ways to make learning languages easier
  3. How Israel is different than other countries

Thanks for sharing this, Noah. It's cultures that I want to really learn. That's the reason I studied Chinese (but didn't have the time to learn it through). But language, as Guy intimated, gives you very deep insight into a people's mindset (i.e. no time for pleasantries). I also love new ways of learning. And Guy's method (i.e. reading graffiti) sure is a winner. If I were to study Hebrews, I'd definitely want to learn it his way.

Loved the podcast! And Guy is an awesome teacher!

I have only one comment. Mafalda is NOT for kindergarteners. It has a lot of political, social and intellectual nuances. It was for Quino a vehicle to express the Argentinian and Latin American Zeitgeist of the time the strip was written.
