● It is very important to read and to listen a lot. The more you listen, the better you will understand: songs, radio programmes, TV shows, movies, news and documentaries ... Reading will also help you write better.
● Remember that you do not have to understand all the words to get the gist. So you can start from graduates books to newspapers, magazines, blogs…
● Check your progress. Check what you've already studied and you will find it easier. Progress!
● Take every opportunity you have to communicate in writing - by email, postcards, letters, chats, messages etc.

● Re-read what you've written: when you write, always take more time to review and correct mistakes.
● Try to talk as much as you can: talk to your classmates, your teachers, with your host family, with your new friends or even to yourself!
● What if my friends or roommates prefer to speak in another language? “Explain that you would prefer to speak in Spanish. You can establish the policy "only Spanish" as if it were a game.
● Memorize the phrases you are going to say more often - to meet someone, do the shopping, etc.
● Most people never achieve a perfect accent in a foreign language. It does not matter, what matters is that you make yourself understood.

“And the vocabulary? How do I learn all the new words?”

● You will find it easier if you group the new words by meanings, using word association or mappping words.
● You can also “see” the word in your mind, make combinations between sounds or pictures to remember the new words or study the new vocabulary in a sentence or text.

“Any other questions?”  “No”  Then ... prepare your luggage. We are looking forward to meeting you.
