I’ve just been listening to Steve’s recent video and he mentioned the lessons with tutors. I was interested to hear that during the lessons he has the opportunity to speak almost uninterrupted. At the minute I am doing some lessons on Skype from tutors elsewhere but I don’t seem to have much chance to speak or be given the framework in which I can become more capable of speaking. I’m sort of looking for support to help me to speak more. Is this what LingQ lessons are like? I have plenty of textbook lessons so I’m not looking for that - I can do that sort of thing on my own. Perhaps the kind of lessons I want don’t exist, but I just thought I’d ask
I’m surprised none of the Spanish tutors have answered yet.
Yes, Lingq lessons are generally as you seem to want them to be. It’s just an uninterrupted conversation.
@Yotsuba - You can have conversations with the LingQ tutors which is great because they correct you and give you pointers throughout the conversation and also provide you with a conversation report. I’ve spoken with a couple of the tutors and they’ve always been very patient, helpful and are open to discuss any topic. I also use the tutors a lot on www.italki.com. Jumping in and having a conversation has helped significantly in improving my language skills. It can be frustrating when you can’t find the right words but above all else it has been fun. I still speak awfully slow in comparison to the Italians but it’s a process. I’ve had conversations in Italian on everything from entertainment to politics to the weather. With every conversation I learn something new and it’s an opportunity to put in to practice what I spend so many hours learning. Hope this helps:)
