I started learning Arabic recently – I’ve volunteered to be a tutor for Paper Airplanes and would like to try and study a little Arabic. It’s hard, not because the language is strange, but because the podcast I’m using travels at a million miles per hour! As a result, I’m going to slow down the delivery in my podcast. I often listen while washing up or driving, when it isn’t practical to pause the podcast, which I’m sure is true about many others who listen to mine. So, from now on, I’ll speak more slowly and repeat more often. It’ll feel odd and slightly patronising I’m sure, but with time I’ll get used to it and hopefully people who listen will only benefit.

In the meantime, check out my previous podcasts. Some of them are pretty good!
