In this live recording of the I Will Teach You A Language podcast on YouTube, I answer the question: "When is the right time to start speaking a foreign language?" I also answer:

  • Why is this question asked in the first place?
  • What are the most popular theories and methods?
  • What are people's actual experience in real life with these methods?
  • What is my personal perspective on the best approach to speaking?
  • How can I get my question answered on the podcast or YouTube?
