Do you want to see how this can be done? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, you have come to the right place.
There are may factors that will determine your success. Surely the language learning strategies you use are one of the most fundamental to your success.

Many language learners settle for a lot less than they can achieve for different reasons. Sometimes it is because they have settled on the wrong understandings, methods or tools, sometimes it is because they lack belief in their own capacities (caused by going about learning that has not produced the results you expected) and sometimes because there is a lack of clarity in what they really want from their lives.
In these pages you can find an ever increasing number of insights, into what you can do NOW to improve your language learning. We make available, free of charge usually on a regular basis, insights and strategies that you can use to transform your learning so that you make continued and measurable progress. You can find out here what actually works, so you can concentrate on the things that work, not the things you think should work but in fact may not. You can learn to avoid the ways of learning that are virtually guaranteed not to work, despite the fact that so many learners think that they should because that is the way they were taught.
I will mention here one crucial point that holds true no matter what you do and how you are learning. Namely, that the quality of your speaking in another language will be determined by the quality of your listening. This will no doubt be a surprise to many people, as most language teaching does not appear to not take this on board. Instead, many learners and teachers think that studying (grammar, vocabulary, phrases and so on) will give the learners their desired results. It does not.
On this site you will find a lot of practices and discussion, including the learning of pronunciation, language structure, reading, vocabulary and spelling, that will help you focus on your listening and hence improve your learning.
