Kathy’s interview @ WNYC radio’s “The Takeaway”

I am so happy to share with you that I was interviewed on the importance of foreign language learning on WNYC radio’s “The Takeaway” by show host Tanzina Vega.

It was a wonderful opportunity to get the word out, especially to parents and communities, not only in the NYC area, but in all the locations throughout the country where “The Takeaway” airs.

While waiting in the “green room,” I had a chance to view the wide range of activities at a busy, and prestigious, radio station on a weekday morning, and I was impressed by the many plaques and trophies for awards won that were on display.

Many thanks to the entire team at WNYC for their warm welcome and for making me feel at home, and special thanks to Tanzina Vega for a wonderful conversation and to producer Alexandra Botti for reaching out to me, for the follow-up, and for the great photos!  🙂
