Today I bring on the man behind the Add1Challenge: Brian Kwong. I sadly started my language learning journey slightly after the first Add1Challenge, but just based on sheer popularity I knew I had to join the next one. I also ran into Brian in Berlin so it was great to meet him in person as well.
On the episode today we discuss the new Add1Challenge, where the signup process starts TODAY! and runs onto the 18th of July. Be sure to sign up before and make your application as good as it can be as the spots are limited to 150 people.
During the episode we also get into very helpful tips and tricks on how to achieve massive language challenge success. It's well worth it to listen to the episode just for these great tips that Brian shares with me. I hope you enjoyed the episode and will join me and Brian on the Add1Challenge!
