About this Episode

If you’re like me, you sometimes find yourself listening to a podcast like this about language learning, in your native language or one that’s very advanced, as a way to escape the actual language learning you want to be doing. It sounds crazy to those who don’t experience this feeling, but language avoidance is a real thing for many language learners, and podcasts like this can feel great because we’re improving our general language learning by listening to shows like mine. But, I also want to honor your language time by creating space for you to study. We’re all busy. There are so many things to manage and improve. So today’s episode, after the introduction, is 20 minutes of silence with a 10-minute notification. It’s a place holder for you to do something with your language.

I decided to create this episode to give a little nudge to anyone who comes here and also wants to study, to anyone who comes here to sort of avoid a language thing but still wants to be connected, and also as a placeholder for language time. Any time you have 10 to 20 minutes to study and need some accountability or a bit of a boost, come back to this episode. Download it and keep it in your playlist, and any time you’re having difficulties getting started, come back to this episode, and I will be here with this study time placeholder for you.
