My #1 antidote for frustration while learning

I have yet to meet a single person who hasn’t felt frustration when it comes to learning… anything, but this is especially relevant for those learning languages with big reputations… like Finnish.

So today I made you a little video to help move you forward when you get stuck in a big puddle of frustration. Because ultimately, if you don’t learn to recognize and deal with frustration… you’ll stay there. So here ya go!

“What is your single, best non-obvious tip for language learning?”

This week I did an interview with Oliver from learnwitholiver.com where I answered 10 questions about language learning and living abroad, among other topics. Of the 10 questions, my favourite was: What is your single best non-obvious tip for language learning? This was such a great question (thank you Oliver for asking it!) that I decided to write a whole post about it.
