In this episode we hear from Chuck Smith about the upcoming Polyglot Berlin Gathering, but we also get a rare behind the scenes look into Duolingo and the people volunteering to create the language courses. We also couldn't resist talking a bit about Esperanto.
Note: This is part 3 in my trip report of my weekend trip to Berlin to take part in an Esperanto course hosted by Judith Meyer and Chuck Smith. If you have not read the previous parts yet, I suggest you go back to part 1 here: Trip report: Joining the Esperanto-Club and buying cafés
The previous part ended with me learning a valuable lesson in language learning, and specifically in Esperanto. It was the first day of the course and I was excited to go and meet up with other new learners, but also excited about exploring the city of Berlin as I had only been here once before, and that was during the polyglot gathering, where I did not have time for sightseeing.

The last post wrapped up at the end of Thursday, with me going back from my day around Berlin. Not much happened and as I had been using a lot of resources, going to bed early-ish was probably a good idea to save some energy for the next few days.
This is my trip report of the Esperanto course that was hosted by Judith Meyer and Chuck Smith in Berlin. In this first part you can read about why I got into learning Esperanto, as well as what I was doing before the trip to prepare to be immersed in an Esperanto environment for a week.
It's another Friday and another podcast episode! Today I'm very happy to welcome Chuck Smith onto the show.
