Language acquisition improvement?
The best way to improve language skills is to have confidence and not be afraid to make mistakes-you will make mistakes when you speak- but thats the beauty of learning a different language. You have to be comfortable doing that. Also, the best advice is to talk with native speakers. When you only surround yourself around Americans, and only speak English with each other, nothing will change, and your language skills will not improve as much. I did need to use Spanish in everyday interactions, and in my city, not a lot of people spoke English, which I liked.
