Language learning is a wonderful journey, but it's also hard work and there's a lot of confusion out there.
You might be confused about methods, tips, tools and even which language you should tackle next. Imagine having two good friends who know what the deal is in this language learning journey, and who will be happy to help you out.
Sounds great, right? Here's how make that wish into reality - for free!
On the next episode of our Creative Language Learning Podcast, Lindsay Dow and I will be answering your a language learning questions, sharing your stories and hearing from listeners all over the world.
Right now, there is one thing missing:
We Want To Hear Your Voice
What would a feedback podcast be like if there were no listeners? Very empty! We don't want that, we want you guys to be part of the episode, making your own voices heard.
In return, Lindsay and I will put our minds to giving you the best language learning advice - or life advice if you have an international love dilemma, a question about studying abroad or any other question that needs the power of our combined years of language learning power.
You don't have to make an appointment to be a guest on our show - not this time.
Simply think of your language question, story or product recommendation, record yourself or leave a Skype voicemail, and we will be delighted to have you on our show.
Don't Know What To Ask?
Some intriguing questions from past shows included:
Why are you guys learning Korean and Welsh?
Which app should I use for finding cool language exchange partners?
Help! I'm learning 3 languages and I can't keep up. Do you have any tips?
