My guest for today is Ray Blakney, an edu-preneur and founder of Live Lingua, a one-on-one online language learning service. In 2015, Live Lingua was named among the Best 360 Entrepreneurial Companies in America by Entrepreneur Magazine.

In this very robust conversation Ray and I talk about:

☎ Languages! Why they’re so important for all kinds of reasons including economic, cognitive and cultural; why they’re so hard to learn, but also the many ways technology has changed the language learning game — and will continue to do so.

🏙 Why passion continues to be a key predictor of teaching quality; and why ventures like Ray’s, stemming out of a soul searching life decision, could be increasingly common among teachers today

🏫 We also talk about the Great Resignation in education, which, paired up with online learning, could mean a lot more “EdTechpreneurs” in some parts of the world, and a lot more overseas teaching and tutors playing an increasingly larger role in the education of others

🇳🇿 Finally, Ray talks about what he believes are the reasons why “Higher Ed sucks,” and consequently why radical new forms of teaching are showing up with significantly better measurable outcomes.
