Teaching languages today is as exciting as it is challenging! That’s why we here at Mango Languages created “Teaching Languages Today”, a conversational podcast for world language educators that gets to the bottom of what’s working – and what’s not. Listen in for the problems fellow teachers are facing, learn what solutions they’ve found – and get some much-needed self-care reminders of why you fell in love with language teaching to begin with. Your host for the show is language teacher and linguistics researcher Emily Sabo (PhD). In each episode, we’ll learn to see World Language Ed through a new lens, by sitting down with an all-star lineup of teachers, administrators, and students. It’s our hope that the stories you hear in “Teaching Languages Today” will get you thinking – and feeling – differently about what you do in the classroom.
In this episode, our host Dr. Emily Sabo (linguist, Mango Languages) sits down with a very special guest…the 2022 ACTFL National Teacher of the Year, Heather Sweetser! Heather is a Senior Lecturer of Arabic at the University of New Mexico and an all-around pedagogical rockstar. Listen in as Emily and Heather discuss the benefits of multi-dialectal teaching, the shifts in language ideologies that would transform student outcomes, and their predictions into the future of world language education in the United States.
Mango Classroom was designed by linguists & teachers and built on our proven methodology to meaningfully engage World Language and English Learners, building their skills and confidence. Find out more at: https://mangolanguages.com/education/
