I can teach spanish but I want to learn advances english by skype, What did you say?
Well, I think it is a lot better approach to follow if you concentrate on reading and listening activities for a year before holding conversations on skype. You can only use what you already know. If you only know a few phrases in your target language don’t expect to go beyond conversing greetings and such. It will be pretty much a frustrating and useless experience to get something out of it. Build your foundation first and work your way up.
@Asad, Carlos is learning English for 3 years. It is absolutely necessary to practize speaking at this level.
@Carlos: The way it works is that you offer conversations, and you’ll have to wait that someone signs up. Then you get points for the conversations that you’ve hosted and you can sign up for English conversations. As well you can buy points.
Carlos, if you would like to learn advanced English and have conversations by Skype you can just sign up with any teacher scheduling English conversations. I hold hour long group conversations or shorter individual conversations. I also hold conversations in French, but I don’t think you are ready for that yet.
You can do likewise and offer Spanish conversations if you wish. In fact you can concentrate on getting better at English as your primary goal and just correct the written texts submitted by others in Spanish to collect points. You can use the points to join English conversations if you feel you don’t want to buy points for conversations.
Sorry, But do i have to collect or buy points to be able to have conversations or i can simply have free conversations via skype ?
You have to collect or buy points to be able to have conversations via the LingQ system.
There’s no rule against asking for language exchanges on Lingq, which I presume is what he is doing.
I think, this way to learning language (communication with native speaker by skype) is the good idea. Especially if you like more communication than reading or listening. Sorry for my poor english ))
well i have no points but i’m looking forward to joining conversations via Skype because what’s the point of adding tutors on skype ??
me too, i wanna learn english very fluently plzzzzzzzzz heheh
Well. I don´t wanna be a tutor ´cause I don´t have fluid english yet, and Also I don´t know what topic talk about, How can I correct texts?, I am to shy for make a group or be a tutor, but i will make an exception to increase my level, i can help you with your spanish, now the point is, ¿How can we help you? Any Idea, I search the option to send mail but it isnt, and I try to put my mail but I can´t do either… help!!! =)
Well, Carlos, what are your language activities like in a typical day?
