Irina Pravet: Creating an Online Program for Learners of All Levels
This episode I speak with Irina Pravet, who is one of my favourite people in the world. She always has such a calming approach to things and it’s an absolute joy any time I get to speak with her. As we discuss a little in the interview, we first met back in 2014 at the Polyglot Conference in Novi Sad, during an abnormally warm October. As well as meeting at various events since then, and Irina speaking at Women in Language (which, sidenote, will be back later this year, just a little heads up there), Irina very kindly took some time to teach me an intro to the notorious Finnish cases, which I promise aren’t as bad as it seems at first. In this conversation, I ask Irina how she organises her Finnish Through New Eyes program, designed for learners at various levels. The one thing they do have in common? Living in Finland. Learn more about Finnish Through New Eyes here: https://irinapravet.com/finnish-through-new-eyes/ And visit Irina's website here: https://irinapravet.com/ Other things mentioned in this episode...

Teach a Lesson on my YouTube Channel!
Hey! Welcome back to a brief and slightly different episode of Teach Languages Online, not really an episode at all, more of an update. After what it’s fair to say was an unexpected break. When coronavirus decided to make a name for itself, something had to be put on pause to allow me to be there to best help learners and teachers navigate this weird time, and unfortunately the podcast was one of those things. So apologies for that but I’m sure you can understand why. I want to make videos for my YouTube channel with you.  What’s the thing that people think is difficult about the language you teach? What’s the question you always get answered? Teach me! Of course, there’ll be a link back to your own website in the comments so it’s a great chance to share your wisdom with a whole new group of people as well. If you’re interested, there’s a short form to fill out at lindsaydoeslanguages.com/shareyourteaching and let’s arrange a time to speak soon. Stay safe, and look out for the next episode of the podcast coming soon.

Science Stuff: Theory of Multiple Intelligences with Ash
What's the Theory of Multiple Intelligences and is it useful for teaching? Or is it as useful as knowing which Disney Princess you are on a Buzzfeed quiz? In this episode, I bring Ash back to discuss Howard Gardener's Theory of Multiple Intelligences, and see why it might not be the best thing for educators... To confirm, we're not denying Gardener's MI theory in this episode, more so it's relation to the classroom (virtual or otherwise!). I urge you to listen to the experts on this as well! For a conversation that doesn't lean into Disney Princesses, check the Conversations with Alanis Morissette episode with Howard Gardener: https://alanis.com/news/podcast-episode-11-conversation-with-howard-gardner Howard Gardener's response to mixing "multiple intelligences" with "learning styles": https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/answer-sheet/wp/2013/10/16/howard-gardner-multiple-intelligences-are-not-learning-styles/?noredirect=on My recommendation for you this episode is my YouTube Channel.

Interview: Elfin Waters on Using Instagram to Connect Like a Human When Teaching Languages Online
I'm delighted this episode to chat with Elfin Waters about how she uses Instagram to promote her online teaching and reach new students. But "promote" feels like the wrong word.
