Sabe alemán, inglés, español (con un perfecto acento porteño), portugués, catalán, francés, sueco e italiano,…

Today I am extremely honored and proud to feature an interview with 2 fellow Chileans, Victor and Fiestoforo from Kimeltuwe, one of the most popular sites to learn Mapudungun (they have a really good Facebook page).
