It's never too late to better yourself!

Dyslexic Spanish learner Charlie from the USA (Texas) keeps track of his Spanish journey in form of a YouTube channel.

In this podcast interview, we talk about various methods on how charlie became fluent in Spanish (Italki online lessons, Omegle, VR Chat, Duolingo and more).

Charlie is a super learner and I appreciated the time with him. I could learn a lot and you might as well. If you are into Spanish learning or if you need some inspiration for your language journey, this interview will be something for you.
