 Dr Michael Arnheim (or “Doctor Mike”, as he is commonly known) is a practicing London Barrister and Sometime Fellow of St John’s College, Cambridge.
Michael did a short talk for us in 2017, and this was so well received, we had to get him back.
While on vacation in Mozambique at the age of fourteen Arnheim found that he was able to understand the local Portuguese-language newspapers on the basis of his schoolboy Latin. He later developed this approach, based on English, into a fully-fledged method of building a learner's vocabulary not only in Latin but in the Romance languages as well, and even to some extent in other European languages. This is the subject of a book, provisionally titled Angel Tongue.
