AFP 48 – Mike Campbell: Sentence-based learning and Glossika

(Last Updated On: April 27, 2020)

On today's podcast episode I'm joined by Glossika founder, Michael Campbell. Mike and I talk about sentence-based language learning and how Glossika works. We also get into the state of language learning today, as well as a lot of other good stuff!

A note on the recording quality

The recording conditions were not ideal for this episode, which means that there are some static and slight volume inconsistencies. I apologise for this, and I will promise to work harder on it going forward. The reason for the poor quality is that I'm using a different computer from the one that broke on me a few weeks back, which takes some getting used to.

One of my ambitions for Season 2 is to streamline the recording process, upgrade the equipment and get professional help to ensure the quality level is at the maximum.
