Just eight days now. It’s scary! I’ve been having extra lessons to raise my spoken language game from “horrifying” to merely “awful”. One of the things I’ve found helpful is Amolto Call Recorder for Skype. I’ve been using it to record my calls so I can listen to them later and get a second shot at my teacher’s wisdom (with her permission of course!)
Unfortunately, the results have been a little demoralising. I can’t believe how much time I spend just saying “Ummmm”.
So… there’s a long way to go.
