This issue illuminates strategies, resources and tips on forming lasting connections within the language community as part of the overall theme of Language Exchange.

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.
