Use language for real learning

“Ask any solider the difference between basic training and combat.  The same difference exists between language study and language use. ” – Barry Farber, “How to Learn Any Language”

Try recalling the words you’ve learned most recently the next time you meet by surprise a speaker of the language.  Your mind is likely to be a frustrating blank.  Once you’ve used your knowledge in real life, your chances of  recall are much greater, Barry Farber assures us.
