Conversations with Kate - Poet on the Podcast - Part 1


Last week, I had the absolute pleasure of having an online conversation with language teacher Kate about languages, cultures, immersion, poetry and creative expression for her podcast, handily entitled Conversations with Kate!

It was a mixture of nerves and excitement for me, not least because I read a poem in French to celebrate the forthcoming World Poetry Day on Thursday 21st March 2019.

If you want to learn a bit more about me, where I have lived, what languages I have learned/am still learning and why poetry is the coolest, then dive into this 15-minute podcast.
