America the Bilingual is a storytelling podcast designed to inspire people on their journey to bilingualism. We'll listen to people who have become bilingual, especially native-English speakers who learned another language as adults (that is, the hard way). How did they do it? Why did they do it? How do they lead their bilingual lives? You'll find out every two weeks.

Well, of course I like it! Very excited about the launch.
Such a great story about how languages can make all the difference -- merci!
Happy this exists
This is very well done podcast about learning a second language. I find it helps motivate me to continue my learning of French, and hearing the profound effect a second language can have on your life is inspiring. Looking forward to more quality stories to come
