I do feel weird at times with self promotion, but sometimes I participate in interviews with people who like to talk about language learning and intercultural issues. I recently did two such interviews, so I thought it would be nice to post the URLs, so that others can listen to them too.
The first was recorded at KOOP Radio here in Austin, with Michael Froehls, who hosts the show “The Global Wanderer”. We had a nice chat about intercultural awareness and language learning. After listening to this interview, you may want to check out some his other interviews. It’s a pretty interesting collection and he’s a fascinating guy.
A few weeks ago I did another interview with Jenny Zhu, who is the co-founder of OpenLanguage. I have admired her work for years, and so it was great fun to discuss what it means to be a polyglot. You may enjoy listening to this interview too. Similarly, I invite you to check out OpenLanguage. They have really innovative ways to presenting online learning of foreign languages.
Myself, I’ve been a sort of global wanderer too this summer: Belgium, Germany, Alaska, Korea, Peru, Chile, Utah/Idaho, and that has all been in the past 13 weeks. Brazil is still around the corner, and then things will settle down.
Hope you enjoy the interviews.
