5) You haven't found a language exchange to practice your English yet? What a shame! You should have a language exchange by now. If not, keep looking at mylanguageexchange or lenguajero. Please, don't give up. Remember that to improve your English talking to a native speaker is a must.

6) Review the theory of the passive voice in Spanish and do the exercises. More theory in Spanish about the passive voice, by Silvia Bernial.
