Time for another Actual Fluency Podcast! This week I talk to Alex Strick van Linschoten about his experiences learning language from the “usual” romance languages to the more obscure Dari and Pashto in Afghanistan.

Alex has an extremely interesting language learning story, from being influenced by his parents to learn the languages around him at an early age, to taking the plunge and moving to Afghanistan of all places!
There he learnt Pashto and Dari, and had various roles and responsibilities as a journalist, translator, and also interpreter.
A super interesting show this week, that could've lasted 2-3 times as long 🙂
