Relationships draw you back into a
foreign language again and again.
It's not hard these days to set up conversation practice in person or online. I will help you make this critical step within the first 20 hours of language study. We'll make it as painless as possible, but there will be pain. It's like attending your first yoga, dance, or martial arts class. You cannot "study away" the clumsiness.
It might not be clear at first what to do during conversations, especially when you can barely put two words together. I'll show you how to get the most out of conversation practice at any level of proficiency.
