It's the 6th episode of the second season of the Actual Fluency Podcast and I'm super thrilled to be joined by Lauren Cutlip from Fluent in 3 Months. We first got to knew Lauren as Benny Lewis' girlfriend last year and this year we're getting to know her more as she recently started releasing a video series about learning Russian using the speak from day 1 approach.
We first got to met Lauren last year as he debuted in the Fluent in 3 Months Video Series: Coaching a monoglot to learn Esperanto in 6 weeks. After demonstrating great Esperanto ability during the Polyglot Berlin Gathering she decided to take up Russian and has been studying it for some time now.
During the episode we talk about the difficulties of learning Russian and how Esperanto helped her overcome some of those challenges.
