    EwK200 - Have the right mindset for attending meetings in English

    EwK200 - Have the right mindset for attending meetings in English

    In today's episode, I want to talk about mindset. It’s important! Of course you need to know what you’re talking about, to use the right words in the right way, and to be competent. However, the way in which you approach meetings in another language, the way you treat yourself, and the stories that you tell yourself are also important! I am using my recent experience of participating in meetings in Romanian. I talk about 10 key points that are related to our mindset and how we prepare for meetings in another language. You can find out more on the show notes page:https://englishwithkirsty.com/episode200

    EwK198 - Things to keep doing and things to stop!

    EwK198 - Things to keep doing and things to stop!

    In today's episode, I'm reflecting on my language learner journey so far so that I can decide what worked well in the past, and what I no longer want to do. This will help me to have a more productive and enjoyable experience of learning Romanian - because I can review what I've learned through studying German and Turkish. Do you relate to any of these points? If you'd rather read my article on the lessons I've learned, it's available on my blog. Alternatively, you can visit the show notes page.

    EwK196 - Are you using these terms that may confuse someone with English as a first language?

    EwK196 - Are you using these terms that may confuse someone with English as a first language?

    This episode is based on an article that I wrote for the Fremdsprachen Jobs site about words and phrases that are used by German speakers, and that sound like English, but which don't mean the same thing, or don't mean anything in English! I decided to talk about this here because some of the topics can be applied more broadly in terms of words that might make sense to you and everyone in your office, but not to people from other parts of the world. Every language has these words and phrases, even more so as English is increasingly used for business. I chose examples from German because I am most familiar with those. Can you think of any more?
