What Did You Learn in 2018? (with Shannon Kennedy)

Happy New Year! 🎇

Please take 5 minutes to take our Fluent Show survey!

In this episode, I hung out with friend of the podcast Shannon Kennedy to talk about saying goodbye to an old year and welcoming a new one.

Shannon is an accomplished language learner who's studied over 10 languages including French, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian, and Russian. Her year has always been about languages, and with her recent move to work with language app Drops, she even chose to add more languages.

Here are the year review questions we discussed. You can use them to conduct your own review of 2018 and set goals for the next year.

  • How would you sum up the year in your languages?
  • What changed in your life and in your languages in 2018?
  • What lessons do you think you learnt from the year 2018?
  • What surprised you?
  • What will you change going forward?
  • Looking forward, what are your language learning goals for 2019?
