Podcast Episode 24: European Day of Languages Live!

Welcome to our first ever LIVE episode of the Creative Language Learning Podcast! In episode 24, we treat you to a piece of the European Day of Languages broadcast which was the first time ever that Lindsay and I tried something like this.

There was so much going on:

  • Music!
  • Live comments!
  • A Revival of the Languages vs. Dialects Debate!
  • Reports on Log Sawing in Germany!
  • Chat about our Grandparents!

European Language Charts!

Instead of the Creative Language Learning Podcast tips, this episode featured a collection of as many European artists and European language songs as we could find. Here is our Spotify playlist for hours of Euro music fun.
