If you took a foreign language class, you may have noticed something: almost no-one ends up actually able to speak the language.
For some, this is fine. It’s just a graduation requirement for them — but for those of you who are excited for the chance to study a new language, this can be a bit discouraging.
Fortunately for you, we’re spending today’s episode talking about how to get the most you can out of your language class, increasing the likelihood that you’ll remember more than how to say hello.
