"The Tyranny of the Shoulds" with Dr Roger Kreuz

<p>This episode, I&#39;m bringing you an interview with experimental psychologist and author Dr Roger Kreuz. Along with Richard Roberts, Roger is the co-author of my favourite language learning book ever, <a href="https://www.worldcat.org/title/becoming-fluent-how-cognitive-science-can... rel="nofollow">Becoming Fluent</a>.</p>

<blockquote>
<p>“People think about fluency as perfection as opposed to something that’s achievable by almost anybody with some effort. There really is a different way of thinking about it that makes all this much more achievable.”<br>
Roger Kreuz</p>
</blockquote>

<p>I&#39;ve previously raved about this book on my blog (see link section), and in this interview I was excited to get the opportunity to discuss the psychology of language learning with Roger.</p>
