Welcome to episode 242, introducing a very special guest. I'm pretty excited for this interview with my friend Josh Goldsmith from techforword. Josh is a super impressive person: UN and EU interpreter, successful entrepreneur, and an all-round sunny soul.
In this episode, you'll learn about
- Interpreting - what's it like and how do you get the good jobs?
- Tech for Languages - why does it change the game for language learners...and what to remember if you're scared it'll be hard to use
- Artificial intelligence! - will the robot butlers become our future language tutors?
But best of all, Josh is my partner for a brand new language learning project! We're calling it AI Language Club, and starting next month we will start bringing you the freshest ideas and experiments so YOU can use new AI tools to help you learn languages faster.
We would LOVE to have you join us in AI Language Club, our project that aims to make language learning fun and engaging by exploring different AI tools. Join the waitlist at www.ailanguageclub.com
"Technology helps us do our jobs better, be more efficient, be more accurate, and it's also a lot of fun." (Josh)
