2016-10-6 22:56
The journey of learning another language adds so much to our lives. It is definitely more than worth the effort. The two best tips i have been given are 1) study and practice everyday - no matter how busy you are you can find 15 minutes to listen to an audio file song, messages, sitcoms in your language of study (while on the bus, train or plane, walking, doing household chores or exercises) 2) Practice what you know today - Don't wait till you ...
