The Learner Profiles series is back and in this episode I speak with Wouter Corduwener from the Netherlands who has seen some viral traction on Youtube after posting a video where he speaks in 18 different languages.
Learner Profiles is BACK! This is the regular series where I interview language learners to find out what makes them tick. Including what methods they use, what got them into languages and much more.
Wouter caught my attention recently because he put out videos on YouTube where he fearlessly approached people in foreign languages, which is something I’m personally very bad at. During the episode I try to extract some of his secrets as well as talk about confidence in general.
