The Polyglot's Playground

(For Adults and Parents of Children learning languages)

...this is for adults and parents of children under 13

Quite simply, the answer is because U.S. law requires that I put warnings on my site, if I solicit personal information from visitors.  I don't really solicit any information; however I do have a "guest-book" where visitors may leave their names and comments about my website.  It is an opportunity, not a solicitation.  However, since the law may not see it that way, I have to put warnings on my website.

Furthermore, there are third-party advertisements, which may solicit information (for the purpose of selling something).  While I am not directly responsible, I am indirectly responsible for that since I have placed the ads on my website.  Lastly, I do solicit donations, but is unlikely that any child under 18 years of age has PayPal, so therefore cannot donate.

That's why children under the age of 13 should be with a parent or guardian when visiting this website.

I hope you all enjoy the wonderful educational material that I have amassed free of charge (as it should be)!

What is a polyglot?

Poly is a Greek word meaning "many".

Glot is a Greek word meaning "tongues" or "languages".

(Actually the word "language" means "tongue" in Latin.)

So, a 'polyglot' is a person with many tongues (languages)!!!

How many tongues do you have?
