About This Episode
Welcome to our first ever LIVE episode of the Creative Language Learning Podcast! In episode 24, we treat you to a piece of the European Day of Languages broadcast which was the first time ever that Lindsay and I tried something like this.
There was so much going on:
- Live comments!
- A Revival of the Languages vs. Dialects Debate!
- Reports on Log Sawing in Germany!
And a special:

Kerstin Is British Moment
In this podcast I caught myself being super British all of a sudden. I mentioned teenagers "on top of a bus" - rest assured that I didn't mean they ride on top of the vehicle and instead meant the top deck of double decker buses.
European Language Charts!
Instead of the Creative Language Learning Podcast tips, this episode featured a collection of as many European artists and European language songs as we could find.
