YouTube LIVE: What’s It Really Like being a Youtube English Teacher?

Lesson Overview

Lesson Summary 

It’s my first YouTube LIVE video in years! I’m sitting down with my business and life partner, Shah, to talk about life, YouTube and teaching English.

It’s been a crazy five years since I started the channel in my kitchen in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

I didn’t think that five years later, I would have 4 million of you around. It’s been such a cool journey and I wanted to share some of it with you, and the day in the life of being a YouTube English teacher.

You can submit your questions in the chat section and I’ll try to answer as many of them as possible. You’ll also get to learn English live – if Shah and I mention any idioms, adjectives, or phrases that I’ve covered in one of my recent lessons, then I’ll talk a little more about it in the live video too.

This is going to be lots of fun and I hope to do more of these in the future. If you have any suggestions for live videos or anything that you want to see, then let me know in the comments.
