Women in Language is a four day, online language event hosted by Kerstin Cable, Lindsay Williams, and Shannon Kennedy.
Attendees of Women in Language have the opportunity to learn from a series of guest speakers with expertise in language teaching and language learning. In addition to attending the talks, attendees will also be able to ask the speakers questions, engage with one another as a part of the event's private Facebook group, and get access to several bonus courses and materials.

Oh hey! I’m Lindsay and I do Languages, which is why I founded Lindsay Does Languages in 2012, a community dedicated to inspiring independent language learners + online teachers to succeed when doing it solo.
Even before that, I was teaching + working in education, from diving right into teaching English in Costa Rica for 3 months in 2008, to spending two years as a Learning Support Assistant in the Language Department of a UK secondary school.
In 2012, I went solo and tutored students + groups privately offline. In 2014, I moved things online, working with companies such as italki and BBC Active, being featured in The Guardian + winning multiple business awards along the way.
Now I’m collaborating with my buddies Kerstin and Shannon to share voices of women in language with this event.
