Speaking practice

Hello again!

Now that we're doing the orals some of you feel the need to practise more, but don't really know how to. Please have a look at this post from EOI Guía, where they suggest lots of pages offering  language exchanges.

Another alternative is to try and make a little conversation group yourselves. Why don't you meet for a drink once a week after class? Just for fun! Even if there isn't a teacher there to correct your mistakes, you can still help each other, like we do in class. In any case, you'll be working on your fluency and losing that "stage fright" you seem to have... besides, you'll be making friends! If you are up to it, I can create a conversation group in our Facebook and you can start from there... Give it a try!

A third suggestion, watch this video giving you some ideas on how to make conversation with a stranger. It might be of help, you never know! In any case, it's good listening practice!

Any suggestions anybody?
