Vocabulary Tip:

Don’t expect the best pronunciation to come out at the beginning. It is about muscles. You must try again and again. The correct pronunciation will come eventually.

Finding someone to correct your mistakes, and building up the working relationship is not easy at all! So, Never get frustrated when your mistake is corrected.

The reason that you can’t speak the language you want to learn is not because you used the wrong software or wrong website. Every software/website/book is just a helpful tool. You can’t expect to learn a language with one book, or records that you will only listen to when you’re driving, or software with fancy pictures and glamorous sounds. They are going to be helpful, for sure. Maybe you must use one of those. But let’s be honest, speaking a language requires some effort…
