Like me, Aletta Mazlin is a big believer in learning languages through stories. Her passion for story-telling has led to the creation of a number of fantastic language learning resources, including The French Experiment, The Italian Experiment, The Spanish Experiment, and The German Project.

Her latest project is called The Fable Cottage, a delightful site which shares bilingual tales for language learners in English, French, Italian, Spanish, and German.

In our conversation, we dive into why Aletta thinks stories are so effective for learning languages and how learners can get the most out of story-based learning.
