AFP 32 – Kerstin Hammes: How to become a (better) teacher
On today's show I'm excited to be talking to Kerstin Hammes. 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.
Kerstin 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.
In this episode you will hear about:
- Kerstin's language learning journey
- What her philosophy is on choosing a language to learn
- The advantages of learning latin
- How to become a better language teacher
- How to avoid devaluing yourself
- And much more!
