I just had a Skype conversation with a teacher I found through Skype.
To be honest, I had booked the session mostly because of the encouragement in the Levels to "go out and speak"... I didn't expect to be able to carry on a conversation with what I knew so far.
But I understood surprisingly much! And was able to say some things! And it was a bizarre feeling to just understand bits without consciously translating...
Also, when she said she lived near Aberteifi, I asked her whether she knew Tresaith... she said she did, very well, and was surprised that I knew of it and asked why So I mentioned the bootcamps there, and she said she knew of a language weekend taking place there in February (she had a card for it on the wall).
Anyway, I'm well chuffed that this conversation went as well as it did!
