Chatterbox #66 – Learning languages

We’ve had two different listeners suggest that we do an episode about learning languages. Maura and Harp could talk forever about this topic! So here’s the episode where we talk about learning French, and a little bit of Japanese and Korean too! Harp also tells us what she remembers about learning English. (Did you know that Harp learned English as a second language when she was a child?) We also give you a few of our best tips for learning English, besides listening to Culips!
