    You are chatting now aren't you?

    Welcome to the forum!
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Chatting is not a panacea, though it will help for everyday's conversations. I used to spend a great deal of time on IRC #london, a sort of chat service. It didn't help that much for any kind of exam in my opinion, though I learned some colorful expressions
    I've had several AE teachers since then, so I got the best of both world

    I go with FRC.

    I think the environment is the most critical of all. But it depends on what you need. If you want to pass TOEFL with flying colors, I suggest you self-study or attend some TOEFL courses at academic institute in your country. For listening and speaking, please go find a real human being. On line chatting does help too, but very little.

    I listened to the radio. Everything from BBC to Wolfman Jack.

    Though I spend much of my life on the internet, I have to say that I find chat has no appeal to me at all.

    he welcome to the forum.
    you can try watching tv or listening to radios that helps

    reading and paying attention to english grammer is very helpful

    Have you ever thought of chatting with a robot? I just did it 5 minutes ago. I tried provoke or tease the robot, I think his answers are pretty cool and fun. As you know, provoking words are usually forbidden on language forum. So if you really get bored, you can try. :wink: They have a robot(named Chabba) who can speak Deutsch!!!

    Have fun!
