Stories that make the world go round!
Believe me when I say this is something I look forward to every week. Life is a story and we need more storytellers in the world.
It's really refreshing to see someone sharing much more than how best to learn a language. Lindsay is on a mission to make sure we meet the people who speak them and how we can help. Awareness is the first step and is exactly what the self-dubbed "language obssessed" chica is bringing to the international stage.
There couldn't be a better podcast to coincide with the fact that she's currently traveling the world. As a language teacher and learner herself she knows what she's talking about. Rest assured that Lindsay does her research while working to share the stories of heroes seen and unsseen throughout the globe.
With her soothing voice and charming personality you can't go wrong. Stop reading this and subscribe already! Props to you Lindsay.
