Innovative Language: The Beginning of True Language Learning

This podcast was submitted by Edgar Lozano. You can contact this contributor via their email at edgar@realrandomradio.com.

This application for the IOS platform will definitely suit your needs if you’re looking for a language learning solution. Tune in as Edgar takes you through the entire app and proceeds to show you a sample of content available within the Chinese member area. If you choose to embark on such an adventure to learn a new language, however, I recommend you learn from multiple resources, rather than sticking to a single curriculum. This is just one of many ways to begin the process. Feedback is always appreciated.
