About this Episode

In this episode, I share an incredibly insightful chat with Jamie, the language coach behind Multilingual Mastery. We recently sat down together for a wonderful conversation touching on a wide range of language learning topics.

Jamie shares how she got into language coaching after realizing that she’d been approaching her own language learning all wrong. She had followed all the standard advice, used all the typical resources, and even lived in the country where her language was spoken. After everything, however, she still didn’t feel fluent. Instead of throwing in the towel, she decided to start talking about language learning on her blog, and today she shares a lot of what she discovered about language apps, language advice, and language learners through her experience researching about learning languages, and how that led her to start Multilingual Mastery.

In this conversation, Jamie and I talk about language advice, expectations, standards, and buzz words you hear in the language learning community that can easily lead to burn-out, stagnation, and anxiety. We talk about what sustainable language learning can look like, why the word “fluent” really gets under our skin, and how we can each take control of our own unique language journeys. Jamie shares an overview of her Multilingual Mastery Method and how she helps her clients discover a sustainable and flexible language plan for themselves, tailored to their particular goals and desires. I had a wonderful time chatting with Jamie. She definitely gave me a lot to think about when it comes to how I view my own language journey, and I hope you get something out of our conversation, as well.
