Today we speak with our fellow Canadian Anesh Daya. He is the owner of On the Spot English, A Canadian-based English training center. In this episode, we talk about his unique method for teaching English. Instead of a classroom, Anesh takes his students to the streets of Toronto.

Listen to find out more about our conversations.
