My NAPS 2016 Presentation: Language Learning Against Depression

At the end of July 2016 I was invited to speak at the inaugural North American Polyglot Symposium conference in Montreal, Canada. Here's my presentation: Language Learning Against Depression

North American Polyglot Symposium 2016 Review (4)About the Presentation

In this presentation I share my own story of depression, and how theĀ language learning community was a huge tool for my success in climbing out of the proverbial hole.

I also touch on why language learning is a good antidote to depression and encourage people to help each other and talk about these issues instead of hiding them.
