Identity, finding home & learning Finnish on The Actual Fluency Podcast – Kris Broholm

April 17th, 2016 Posted by My Story, People & Profiles No Comment yet

Kris Broholm and I sat down to talk about identity, finding home and learning Finnish. We’d met at the Polyglot Gathering in Berlin back in 2014 but it was only this year that the idea of doing an episode of Actual Fluency came up.
