Re: How to unlock your language skills in your TR?

I worked on my Spanish passive-only for about two years, listening perhaps to about one hour of radio talk show a day. I'm a native speaker of Portuguese, so my progress was fast. When I finally got a chance to use it, travelling to a Spanish speaking country, where I had many oportunities to intera...

Re: Identifying and Eliminating bad English pronunciation habits after years of English learning
