For those of you in Brazil, you will be no stranger to today's guest, but if you don't know him, you are in for a treat! Gavin Roy is from Ohio in the USA. He learned Portuguese to go to Brazil for the FIFA Soccer World Cup. On his YouTube channels: SmallAdvantages (with 2.7 million subscribers) and TadyGavin he teaches English through his own journey of learning Portuguese and Czech respectively.

I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation. I'm absolutely amazed by Gavin's motivation to accomplish so much, on top of running a business and raising children. I feel seriously inspired from this conversation. We discussed how he has gained mastery in Portuguese without ever living in Brazil. He explained how he creates a Brazilian life in Colorado, and even speaks exclusively to his son in Portuguese (both he and his wife are American). How visualization is a powerful tool for him to speak three different foreign languages. Why "I don't have time" is not a real excuse, and what you can do if you are someone who feels like they are always too busy. Gavin told me about the role of passion, dedication, and goals in being successful learning languages and guitar. Gavin considers himself a huge perfectionist, he explained how he has become comfortable with making mistakes when he learns a language. If you feel scared to start a conversation, you will get some great advice on how to reprogram your brain to get started speaking English or another language you want to learn. And tons and tons more insights! So get ready for a super fun and inspiring conversation with Gavin Roy on episode 14 of Beyond Borders!
