Customer ReviewsSee All
I’m muy inspired!
I found this podcast through a colleague and within only 4 episodes I’m both enjoying them and finding useful tips from them. Ashley is fun and she chooses guests that are appropriate to her topics and the conversations are easy to follow and listen to. Her topics are relevant to our trade of World Language teaching and I am left feeling confident in the areas that I’m getting review in and support and ideas in the areas I still need to work on!
Love this podcast!
This podcast is so helpful! I leave each episode with so many new concrete ideas on things to implement in my classroom. It is so nice to hear from so many big name language acquisition and CI “gurus.” I appreciate the links in the show notes to the resources people mention!
After each episode I leave with so many takeaways and motivation to make my curriculum stronger and my classes more interactive. I always listen with a pen and paper in hand, but if I ever miss anything, the show notes are so well done. This podcast is my Professional Development I continue to enjoy and get so much out of. Nothing but support and gratitude from me!
