5) Use the sentences from the above exercises to practice with your language exchange. Remember: If you don't have a language exchange (or a teacher) you're wasting your time, you'll never learn to speak English.



6) Let's learn some vocabulary: Food (visual dictionary) & Rooms in a house. Remember: Always use http://www.howjsay.com/ to hear the sound of the new words you're learning.



7) Listen and read this story. You should learn all the vocabulary and practice pronunciation. And, for the most daring, read this article from The Economist.



8) Finally, write a story of about 200/250 words using as many different verb tenses and modals as possible. Suggestion: Ask your language exchange to write a similar story in Spanish and then correct each other's writings. You can use examples from the videos and exercises above.
