"Learning doesn't have to be painful, [it] doesn't have to be ... like being in a cage." - Cristóbal del Castillo Camus

I love this quote from Cristóbal about the importance of making your language learning fun and this episode, he'll share more of his experience with us. we talk about Spanish dialects, in particular, the Chilean dialect that Cristóbal speaks. And we also discuss Cristóbal's experience of learning Polish and Hungarian while living in Chile, and why it's not necessary to live in a country where the language is spoken if you want to learn it.
