About This List

My own language life includes always being fascinated with languages (books, writing, reading), teaching language (English, research on writing English as a second language), learning languages (Spanish, Mandarin Chinese and now German), and content creation (Mandarin Chinese and now German). Although I am not a quick or strong language learner, I love stories about people's relationship with languages AND language learning. Here are some podcasts I've found. Please let me know if you have more, I will add them happily. And yes, I included my own podcast because language has always been a huge part of my life.
