Ep #011 - Looking for Language Learning Inspiration? Our Favourite Language Bloggers To Follow
About this Language Chat
Learning a language takes time – it can be both fun and fulfilling, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not hard work! Outwardly, it can seem like it happens overnight for polyglots, but we have to remind ourselves that this isn’t the reality. So it’s always refreshing (and comforting!) to read and hear from other language learners who have had the same struggles and challenges as us!
In this episode of Language Chats, Bec and Penny discuss their favourite language bloggers to follow for inspiration, motivation and language learning tips and resources.
There are so many more language bloggers out there! Do you have any favourites or go-to language blogs?
