Let's have a look at the episode named Daniel Goodson takes a break in Italy. I did not consider that as a serious episode and therefore, I did not number that one. I did some more unnumbered episodes at the very beginning, which was the product of being unorganised. Or let's say I had too many ideas in my mind. Now, I have to admit I should have numbered all of my episodes.
Yeah let's take French for example: A colleague at the office speaks French and I try to only speak in French to her. Even if I am unsure about the right pronunciation etc. That allows me to slowly but steadily improving on that language. Besides that, I have other methods. But the main problem is lack of time. I learn a lot in a passive way by listening to podcasts in different languages. More and more, I'm trying to study in a more active way because it is way more effective.
Thank you very much for your comment Dandiprat!

Why do you say in this podcast that this is episode 5? I count many more episodes than this. Why are some episodes numbered and others not?
I'm envious of your language ability. I wish I could do a podcast in a foreign language, but it would take a tremendous amount of effort. I keep practicing listening, but progress is very slow.
I think you mentioned earlier that you study other languages besides English. How do you go about studying them?
