I am not sure if this can be applicant to you somehow, but I learnt both Spanish and Korean mainly by having two girlfriends from that background. (Not that you should explicitly make a choice in spouse merely for language learning though.)

i checked your link,but the page is 50%(or more) covered with adds which seems really annoying.their are other sites like "BBC Learning English","British Council","Duolingo"..etc..  and they are comparatively enhanced in quality and its contents.one can easily start learning with these sites with much ease according to his/her level.

These link explains you more about these kind of sites.

Thankyou.

kind regards,
Praveen.



Thank you so much! I totally agree with you! I hate sites that has ads all over them...it stresses me out evermore! Trying to learn a new language is hard enough! lol

Welcome to the Ranch

I am afraid many such websites have to earn their money from advertising.

Hi there,

It's not a very difficult task to improve speaking skills. But you need to follow some strategy to improve your proficiency in speaking. You can follow the following tips:

1. Focus on fluency rather than accuracy.
2. Don't follow grammar blindly.
3. Watch English movies and TV series.
4. Find a native speaker.
5. Focus on your pronunciation.
6. Talk to yourself.
7. Don't hesitate to speak.
8. Follow some English learning [url]websites[https://englishfinders.com/best-english-learning-websites/].

The best advice I can give is to Find a Toastmasters club in your area. This will help you immensely.
