Happy Valentines Day!
Welcome to our very first special episode, just in time for that international day of love. Have you ever wondered why you use a specific language to express certain emotions? Why it feels so much stronger to more intense to say “I love you” in your first language? In this episode, we’re going to be talking about just that! How we say we care for those around us and learning a bit on why our languages and emotions are connected!
In this special episode, we’re joined by our friends and family, as well as Dr. Jean-Marc Dewaele a language and emotion researcher at Birkbeck University of London. Jean-Marc studies how our languages interact with how multilinguals communicate and recognise emotions in different situations. So, if you’ve ever wondered why saying something in your first-second- or third-language feels different, Jean-Marc is here to tell us a little bit on why.
