    Be patient

    Hang out with people who speak the language you are interested in learning.  Conversely, stay away from the ones who speak the same language as yours..

    Yes...I was waiting for your reply. :)

    I notice people who stay within their own little enclave only ever learn the very basics.

    I had no Asian friends to hang out with in Indiana. It was very tough.

    That would have been tough but the benefit is your excellent command of the language. You rock, kiddo. :)

    Well done to you Chiangmai, there are a lot of English people here in Clacton who can't speak proper English.

    I thank you, sunnyB!

    I've heard individuals say that they watched tv 


    and that it helped a great deal to learn their


    new language.
