The International Polyglots Union Brief Story


Upon decision of foundation of the General Union, the Founders faced the problem of the enormous number of gaps in the structure of the professional and non-professional trade unions.

As always expected, the founders decided to concentrate their activities to the closest achievable unions. Since the majority of the founders are either professors or yet researchers and they all carry out teaching activities, it was natural to start their founding activities by the International Professors Union and the International Researchers Union.

While explaining those gaps in the structure of the professional and non-professional trade unions, a great number of participants showed a great interest in starting founding the International Polyglots Union immediately, they even called for starting the activities of the General Union by this specific International Union.

The expression “Polyglot” is basically referring to those who perfect three or more live languages by all means, i.e. reading, writing, understanding, talking and listening.

Many countries have more than one official language, thus the majority of the educated people there perfects at least two national languages. Any of those persons, who perfect any additional language, would simply satisfy the requirements of the definition of the term “Polyglot”.

A very good start already existed in several countries around the world, but in form of language clubs or centers. Those just need a further development to become National Polyglots Unions.

An interesting fact was noticed which imply that many Polyglots, are simply immigrants who recently moved to new destinations, e.g. the USA and Canada.

The idea of founding a similar National Unions has already acquired the basic necessary momentum and by the end of November 2011 in all over the world was already subscribed more than twenty thousands Polyglots as individual members directly in the International Polyglots Union.

The majority of those individual members are living in three geographic zones; those are mainly the Countries of the Mediterranean Sea, Europe and the South Asia.

Any interested individuals, groups or already established unions or associations who are interested in representing their countries are more than welcomed, but for organization of our works they are recommended to start their direct contact with the Founder who is related to their area, simply to facilitate communications and to reduce overlap errors and repeated actions.

It is important to state that the targets and services for the International Polyglots Union were initially adopted, yet they are still subjected to additions or modifications.
