About This List

A selection of shows about languages - language courses excluded
  1. Learn a Language...Or Maybe Three! The Fluent Show is on a mission to help you get excited about language learning. We learn languages every day in our lives, and have learnt over 15 different languages between us. We share stories, news, tips, and ideas that will make you fluent...eventually. Subscribe to the show today to get your regular dose of Fluent love. 🥰 Check out the Fluent Language courses (https://www.fluentlanguage.co.uk/my-courses) It is worth clarifying that we actively want to support anti-racism and will highlight and advocate for the equality of all. Language learning means committing to tolerance of other world views, and this open mind is a core value for me. This topic deserves well considered words so here are the best Kerstin managed to put together. (https://www.fluent.show/blacklivesmatter)

  3. Brought to you by OptiLingo -- The Actual Fluency Podcast features inspirational stories from world-class language learners, industry experts, and regular people who embraced multilingualism in one way or another.

We also talk about apps, methodology, and education to try and find ways to shorten the path to mastery.
