Today I Skyped with another student from my course. We seem to have quite a bit in common, and I’m hopeful these sessions will prove beneficial. I have already learned that I really need to start memorising new vocabulary, and fast in order for conversational practice to be of real benefit.
The other student and I had quite a few laughs, too, which is good. I have to say that overall this seems like a happier bunch of people with whom to be learning. Long may it continue.
