  1. I’m really impressed with all the work Joe Dale has done. He is not just a teacher of foreign languages, he studies language learning from the psychological side, namely what factors can influence their learning. He has a wealth of experience having worked with teachers all over the world. I agree that modern society has barriers to hiring, but I would also like to add that this is a huge stress for a person. I benefited greatly from the podcast because it was mentioned how to deal with a heavy workload at work or school, and how to deal with it correctly. That is, mentioning the correct distribution of time makes it possible to self-organize your work system so that there is no heavy workload. Technology plays a big role in our lives, and even more so in education, so I would like to note that I am very glad that the use of technology in education is simply the first necessity in the education system.
