AFP 47 – Dealing with burnouts in language learning

On this solo episode I talk extensively about the dreaded topic of burnouts in language learning. I discuss how to prevent them, how to identify them and also what you can do if you have been hit by one.


Ah, burnouts. The bane of many a language learner. It happens for many reasons, it happens to (almost) all of us and the idea of a burnout can be crippling.

I've suffered from many burnouts in my life, and my language learning is no exception. So I thought I'd share some tips and tricks I've picked up lately, through research and by interviewing many of the most succesful language learners on the podcast.

I discuss how to spot burnouts, how to anticipate them and what to do if you suffer from a burnout.

How do you deal with burnouts? Be sure to let me know in the comments below 🙂
