Find Yourself a Language Avatar to Step into Fluency
You're leveling up in courses, going from A2 to C1 quickly...but stalling in real life. What gives? This week's podcast covers a question from Maria, a talented language learner who has found herself stuck after moving to Germany. She says: I am fluent in English, or at least my Cambridge Certificate says so, I've been studying to a certain level Spanish and Turkish, but I cannot achieve the desirable level in German language. I've moved to Germany a bit over two years ago after marrying my German husband and I quickly jumped from the A2 course to B1 to C1, got my Test DaF Certificate with maximum points and I even have some professional situations where I speak German but I am not fluent What can Maria do to start feeling more comfortable with German?

If Language is On Fire, Who Puts it Out? (with Alexa Little from 7000 Languages 👩🏼‍🚒)
In this episode, I bring you a touching interview with Alexa Little, a computational linguist who runs a non-profit building language apps for languages that REALLY need them. Endangered Language Revival with Alexa Little from 7000 Languages One common question about endangered languages is what that definition actually means. Here is how Alexa put it: An endangered language is a language that is no longer being transmitted from older generations to younger generations. An indigenous language is a language that is spoken or belongs to an indigenous people. In this interview, you'll hear about how Alexa went from wanting to be an archaeologist to becoming a full-time language activist what the organisation 7000 Languages is all about and how they help communities build language learning apps how schools and school policies in Hawaii affected the survival of the island's own language what you as an 'outsider' can do for language preservation without stepping on the toes of the people who know best where you an find the apps that 7000 Languages creates and use them for free! Plus a really good definition of the language vs dialect hot potato. 🥔 Like all podcasts, the Fluent Show is supported by you.Special Guest: Alexa Little.Sponsored By:italki: Get $10 USD in italki Credits with your first lesson purchase - no code required, click here to claim this offerSupport The Fluent ShowLinks:Mark Turin - WikipediaBlog – 7000 LanguagesDoyon FoundationFirst Peoples' Cultural Council | Language NestWikitongues.orgLearn German in Berlin: Exclusive Retreat — Our German retreat is open for enquiries and bookingsThe Fluent Show: Indigenous Languages Explained (and the Real Meaning of No Woman, No Cry)
Can Helpful Notes Cut Your Reaction Time in Conversations?
This week, I am on a listener inspired quest: Is there a set of language learning notes that can make you better at speaking another language? This Fluent Show episode brings you a discussion of the science of cognitive load, working memory, and long-term memory...all in the quest for finding the best notes ever to use in conversations. Show Patrons can read the detailed show notes now over Patreon! The truth is that there is absolutely no set of notes that will make the reactions faster because as soon as you focus on notes, you’re slowing down. A script comes closest. The purpose of notes in a conversation is to deal with the fact that you’re too busy to add more into your long-term mmory. That’s why it’s important to ask your tutor to note the new vocabulary, or to scribble or type it yourself for later review. So what you want is a good blank page and the discipline and habit of reviewing what came at you in that conversation. Thank you to Jacqueline for this episode introduction.
