Foreign Language Learning Tip #3

Intentionally putting yourself in a position to speak conversational Spanish/French/Arabic (or whatever you're learning) is foundational to picking up the language. And if you can’t leave the country yet, then find a friend who will agree to speak the target language with you. In order to do this for any significant length of time, this friend will have to be patient, gracious, and committed to the goal of helping you practice. Even if they speak only a little better than you do, it will help dramatically.
