    After last week's discussion on why traditional language courses might be outdated (if you missed it - here’s the episode:Why traditional language courses don’t work anymore), this week we're diving into something more practical—how to build an effective marketing strategy for your group course.
    In this episode, we cover:

You’ll be happy to find out that my Language Course Worth Gold challenge is back! It;s completely free to attend and starts on the 1st July! Sign up here.
