    Lucy, what are you doing in England? How much contact do you have with English speakers. Can you give us a few more details to help.

    i am au pair here in england and at the same time i go to college three times a week. i speak with my host family but not that much because they are quite busy and the girls are teenagers so they prefer watching tv.
    at college i met people from other parts of the world but not english people.
    what can i do for the three months left that i've got to feel the difference?
