How Your Personality Changes in Another Language

<p>In today&#39;s podcast, I&#39;m excited to tackle a big question:</p>

<p>Listener Maria writes that she hears people sounding different to her depending on the language they speak. Could it be that learning another language can change your entire personality?</p>

<p>Listen in to hear me discuss a few of the aspects that contribute to how we perceive personality through a language:</p>

<ul>
<li>Language Attitudes and Egocentricity: What you think about different languages and accents</li>
<li>Pragmatics: How people use language to navigate interactions</li>
<li>Language Skills: How a learner&#39;s situation affects how they express themselves</li>
</ul>
