Business of Language Episode 6: Olly Richards of I Will Teach You a Language

Have you ever wondered what it’s like behind the scenes of a language learning blog? You’ll get a chance to get a peek today in Episode 6 of the Business of Language Podcast! In this episode, I talk with Olly Richards of I Will Teach You a Language. Olly is a polyglot who speaks eight languages and teaches others how to learn languages independently.

We talk about his initial inspiration to learn languages and how he got to where he is now. We also get into some behind-the-scenes action of the IWTYAL blog, his course, Language Learning Foundations, and his new podcast that’s reached the New and Notable category in iTunes. He has some great advice for potential bloggers, like tips for producing consistent content. After this conversation I created a new content creation schedule that I’m actually sticking to! If you’re interested in blogging (about anything, not just language-related topics!), you’ll definitely  get some concrete advice from this interview.

Olly has produced A LOT of content! If you’re interested in learning more about his experiences, his teaching methodology, and his language learning tips, I highly suggested jumping over to IWTYAL and also subscribing to his YouTube channel. You can also find Olly on Twitter and Facebook.
