Having had foreign students live in our home while attending school, practice truly is the only way to become more fluent in a language. Teachers must create an accepting atmosphere where all students may make mistakes and learn from them including the foreign students. College bulletin boards offer conversational partners to practice the language needed. Writing notes to native speakers helps with the written language which helps with the spoken language. As the students who lived in our home tried to teach their language to us, I understood how difficult it was, and how much practice is required. The other requirement is to hear what is said exactly, as one of the Spanish speakers could not hear the difference among boss, bass and bus. I found the same difficulty when trying to hear the exact word spoken in Spanish. This requires seeing, hearing and speaking the word to truly understand the word. One of the easiest ways to do that is to watch English movies with Spanish subtitles or the other way around. With the acquisition of more vocabulary, students must continue to speak English in class as practice makes perfect.
