    EwK173 - 8 things not to do if you have an exam

    EwK173 - 8 things not to do if you have an exam

    I don't think many people really enjoy exams. I didn't mind them much at school, but as an adult who hadn't done one for a while, I found myself slipping into some bad habits. Based on my own experience, here are 8 things to avoid if you have an exam - whether it's for an academic qualification, a language test, or something you're doing to improve your skills in your free time.

    EwK172 - get back on the horse - even experienced language learners mess up sometimes

    EwK172 - get back on the horse - even experienced language learners mess up sometimes

    Real life can give you inspiration for podcast episodes. This is what happened to me last week and what I learned from it about picking yourself up and trying again when it comes to using another language.

    EwK171 - 12 things I've learned in 8 years of working from home full-time

    There is plenty of information out there about working from home, but some of it is a bit generic.I decided to share some things that I've learned and that have worked for me during my 8 years of working from home full-time.

    I also wrote a blog post about this, so if you'd rather read the information, you can find it here:

    I also mentioned the conversation club that I've set up with Jane, whom I interviewed on the podcast last time. This information is in German, so if you don't speak German and want to know more, send me a message and I'll help with that.

    EwK170 - Jane Eggers on working in a second language

    EwK170 - Jane Eggers on working in a second language

    Today I have an interview for you with Jane Eggers, who some of you may remember from episode 16.

    Jane is originally from the UK, but she now lives and works in Germany, where she has a German to English translation business called Jane Eggers Translations. We talk about Jane’s transition from using everyday German to using the language at work, who helped her, and what role her second language now plays in her business – not just because she translates from German to English, but also because a lot of her communication with customers is in German as well.

    EwK169 - Challenges and solutions for using another language at work

    EwK169 - Challenges and solutions for using another language at work

    I can help people to improve their English because I'm an English teacher, but I also understand the practical challenges of using another language at work because I do it myself every day when I communicate with my German-speaking customers.

    Here are some challenges that I've faced in my own business journey, and how I've overcome them.

    EwK168 - Make 2020 the year of no more missed opportunities

    EwK168 - Make 2020 the year of no more missed opportunities

    It's the beginning of a new year, and people are thinking about what they want to change or do differently.

    One thing could be to not let opportunities pass you by because of fears about your language skills. The job you didn't apply for/the meeting you didn't speak up in/the contribution you didn't make because you were so focussed on the difference between where your language skills are now and where you would like them to be.

    I've been in these situations too with my German. Some of them are better now because I took action. Others are still work in progress – but I'm getting there!

    The best way to make sure that something gets done is to make a plan. So a vague hope for change becomes a list of specific steps you want to change – so that 2020 is the year when we don't let opportunities or good things pass us by because we are not willing to leave our language comfort zones!

    If this doesn't apply to you – is there something else that you would like to change this year? It doesn't have to be something you want to start or stop doing – sometimes it's just about making a conscious effort to prioritise or improve something.
