My Second Practice Conversation And Why I Need To Start Writing In Spanish

Yesterday I had my second chat with my Aussie based Chilean friend. I must admit I was dreading it. That’s because I haven’t really done much Spanish learning in the last couple of weeks. I have been on the road delivering training courses at the other end of the country. Then I spent a weekend…
