    Smile Speaking English.

    Hi there!
    I was thinking, it could be a great opportunity for most non-native English speakers to polish their 'spoken' English by talking with other people by Skype or something similar. I noticed that it's an awful lot easier to get accustomed to a new language and to enrich your vocabulary (words that you can actually remember) if you chat with someone using the language you're studying, be they advanced speakers of that language or just beginners. Besides, it's quite funny..

    ~~My two cents.

    Quite pleasant, thank you. A couple of rainbows, some smiling clouds and a drunk Martian leprechaun dancing on a Martian Michel Jackson song. Oh, and an almost full moon (I can hear the Martian werewolves howling) which gets greener and greener.

    There are language exchange sites where you can try to do that.

    Also, if people want to exchange any contact details here, could you use Private Message or email rather than posting them so that they don't get farmed and used by spammers. Thanks
