AFP 32 – Kerstin Cable: How to become a (better) teacher

(Last Updated On: April 27, 2020)

On today's show I'm excited to be talking to Kerstin Cable. I first discovered Kerstin and her great blog; Fluent Language before I even started my own. Her professional website as well as top class writing really inspired me to create Actual Fluency.

kerstinhammes_1389798616_96Kerstin is a passionate language learner and teacher and shares in the episode a lot of tips and tricks on how to become a better teacher, how to get what you are worth and even how to build a fully fledged teaching business that allows you to be completely independent. Imagine teaching your native language, whist sitting next to a pool in a warm country and enjoying the weather. That's the life you can have if you just follow Kerstin's advice.
