AFP 41 – Christopher Huff: Toki Pona and Polyglot Gatherings

(Last Updated On: April 27, 2020)

Today I'm happy to welcome on the show my good friend Chris Huff. Chris was responsible for the Toki Pona presentation at Polyglot Gathering Berlin and he currently lives in Beijing, China as an English language teacher.

Merry Christmas!

I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who listens to the Actual Fluency Podcast and wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Audio Quality

Regrettably the audio quality is somewhat low in this episode, which I apologise for. I always strive to provide you with the best quality, but sometimes the problems are outside my control. I'm often forced to choose between giving you guys some great content with minor audio issues or simply scrapping the episode – which I think should only be if the audio is exceptionally bad.

So before you listen, I apologise. Next week will be better. I promise.
