What learning 5 languages has taught me about ELT

Katie Harris is an ELT teacher who speaks Italian, French, Spanish as well as some German and Mandarin. She is the founder of Joy of Languages, a blog which helps language learners find fun and effective ways to start speaking a foreign language. As an active member of the polyglot community, she is often invited to participate as a speaker/panellist at events such as the Polyglot Conference.

How do polyglots manage to learn several foreign languages, while other people struggle to learn one? Do they have more effective methods and if so, can we pass these on to students to help them become better language learners? In this webinar, Katie discusses the insights she has gained from learning several languages and how they can be applied in the classroom to help students learn languages more efficiently.
