Experience the Joy of Reading this December with Issue 7! We will be exploring reading in a second (or third, or fourth!) language in this issue and sharing experiences and views from around the community. Here are some of the article titles you can look forward to: - Have You Ever Wondered Why You Love to Read? - Reading through Social Media - The Underrated Reading in Gaming - How to Find or Create Joy while Reading in a Second Language The Gladly Global Polyglot Magazine is a quarterly publication that makes good on our creed, taking an introspective and holistic look at language learning and culture. It’s a magazine made for the language community, by the language community. We bring nuanced stories, opinion pieces, and practical tools for language-lovers and cultural enthusiasts alike. In the age of globalisation, travel, language learning, and polyglotism are becoming extremely popular. The exchange of culture across borders has become so commonplace that most people are no longer phased by encountering difference outside of its predefined context. However, the discourse surrounding culture and linguistics is still often confined to stereotypes, tourist attractions and crude humour. So, as our motto states, we at Gladly Global set out to deepen the discourse around language and culture, bringing our subscribers into contact with new perspectives and ways of life from all across the globe.
