Yesterday me and Caroline met in the center to finish our EOTO because she is heading back home to Germany already on 10th. I also brought my friend from Saint-Petersburg, who is visiting me at that moment. This time we decided to speak only Russian as we thought it was an excellent opportunity to practice speaking.
I think it was very successful for Caroline as she understood everything and was able to support the conversation. It was a bit problematic for her to build long sentences but in general she managed really well. Me and my friend tried to use simple words and speak slowly but at some moments we forgot that Caroline is not a native speaker and spoke rather fast. It was easy to find new topics to talk about so i hope Caroline broadened her vocabulary a bit 🙂 I hope she will be more brave and start speaking Russian more often because both me and my friend think she speaks really well!
We also practiced our German skills with Caroline. It was rather funny but i think i will improve by the time we meet again in Prague or Germany 🙂 We decided to meet again definitely in the near future and continue chatting via Facebook.
I am really glad i took EOTO and met Caroline because it was a great opportunity to study a foreign language and make new friends. Both of us greatly improved our speaking and grammar skills and hopefully in the future we will be even better 🙂
