Welcome To The Mezzofanti Guild

Welcome to the very first podcast episode of The Mezzofanti Guild | Language Learning Made Simple.

In this episode, I give a simple introduction of who I am, what The Mezzofanti Guild is all about and importantly, who the great Cardinal Guiseppe Mezzofanti was.


  • My name’s Donovan and I created this blog after finishing my Masters in Applied Linguistics.
  • I’ve been traveling the world and learning languages for well over a decade.
  • I specialize in Arabic and am a fluent speaker.
  • Guiseppe Mezzofanti (who this site is named after) is purported to have learned at least 39 languages.
  • Other languages I’ve learned: Koine Greek, Hebrew, Russian, Korean, Irish, Italian, Georgian, Mandarin.
