    This does not have to be all one language. You can have some Vy'keen dialogue, Gek Dialogue, Korvax dialogue, etc you just have to learn 150 total words which you should get very easily. One of the easiest ways to get this is to interact with Knowledge Stones on the planets as they'll teach you a word each stone. Also in some structures on planets they'll have encyclopedias that will give you a word, as well as certain lifeforms will teach you a word if you have the payment.

    APOLLO2342Also talk to everyone on space stations. You may need to barter but you can get five or six a visit to a new station.

    RossCowanIf you're inside an Atlas Station make sure you walk over all the wee silver things around the floor.

    Only some of them seem to give you words - if I had to guess it's that each one gives a set word, and if you don't get one you've already learned it somewhere before?

    Now this isn’t much of a guide. But the way I managed to get “Citizen of the Galaxy” and “What Mad Universe” was when I found a Korvax on a Space Station. Whenever I speak to him I was able to repeatedly select the “Request dialect help” dialog. It worked for me an my friend, but he didn’t bother going for the achievements. It really helps out when you go into settings an turn off hold x to select. I am not too sure that their dialog at the beginning ever mattered, as when I go to talk to him now it doesn’t work anymore. So doesn’t hurt to keep a eye out for that, I don’t know how it happened just took advantage of it.

    You have to learn 150 words for this achievement to pop. The words can be from different languages. There’s an easy way to get this achievement thanks to the last update.

    In every Atlas station there are glowing orbs on the floor. When you walk over three of them, you’ll learn a word. You can learn up to 10 words at every Atlas station you visit.

    Hope this helped you! Happy hunting! toast

    IRL Games XI have been traveling back to the stations I have been to and there are new people look at ones that say nothing under there name. If it says you have met them you can not learn new words from them
