Personal storytelling can be used to improve language skills. Interview with Fabio Cerpelloni.

YouTube version

  • On the previous episode 121, we learned from Lucia that we can learn through listening to other personal stories. "Everyone has a story to tell".
  • On this episode (122) it's all about telling your own stories in order to improve in your target language.  
  • Even though Fabio Cerpelloni's  personal language learning journey did not involve storytelling, he fell in love with telling stories from his own life and has even started to integrate it in his teachings. The book "Story Worthy" by Matthew Dicks inspired Fabio's podcast (Stolaroid Stories) and focus on personal storytelling. Best stories are about failure and can impact others. 
  • Fabio is currently writing a book about his personal journey of learning English and how to learn the language in an organic way. We hope that we can have him on My Fluent Podcast for a second round so that we can learn more about his inspiring journey. Thank you Fabio!
