Conversation may be very difficult at first—but you must keep trying! As you go along, keep in mind that it helps to:

  • Speak English at all times.
  • Speak slower, not faster, if you’re having trouble making yourself understood. Try rephrasing the same ideas using different words.
  • Listen to the expressions your hosts use in English, make sure you understand them, and try to use them, too.
  • Use charades, pointing, and body language!
  • Try writing items down—sometimes your reading and writing skills will be ahead of your verbal skills. Make the most of them!
  • Purchase a Foreign Language—English dictionary.
