About this Episode

In today's podcast, I'm excited to tackle a big question:

Listener Maria writes that she hears people sounding different to her depending on the language they speak. Could it be that learning another language can change your entire personality?

Listen in to hear me discuss a few of the aspects that contribute to how we perceive personality through a language:

  • Language Attitudes and Egocentricity: What you think about different languages and accents
  • Pragmatics: How people use language to navigate interactions
  • Language Skills: How a learner's situation affects how they express themselves
