Is "Natural Language Learning" even a thing?

This week, we discussed two topics:

Topic 1: Teaching Methods!

After watching a few episodes of Welsh reality TV Welsh learning celebrity knees-up cariad@iaith, we decided to pick up on their 3 big methods for teaching languages and explain what they mean and who they work for. These are immersion, TPR, "communication" and story time a.k.a. the "input method".

  • What is natural language learning and why does everyone lay claim to it?
  • Which teaching methods work in our opinion? How do we teach?
  • Which methods would we like to see from other teachers, which innovative methods benefit learners?

Listen in to find out more.

Topic 2: Polyglot 2020

It's time to plan your events for the year! We share what's new with Women in Language, the Polyglot Cruise, the Cholula party, and the Edinburgh Language Event.
