About this Episode

This week on the show, I answer a cry for help from a frustrated listener in Denmark.

Imagine you can speak your target language beautifully. But when it comes to the person you love most, suddenly you clam up and worry and you realise you can't speak to her at all!

Why does this happen? What's going on? Listen to hear more about these three problems and how anyone can solve them and get things moving again:

  • English is your life admin language
  • You struggle to switch languages with your partner
  • Bilingual family life crowds out your target language
