Где найти разговорную практику в Москве. Естественную и бесплатную.

Занятия занятиями, а вам нужно много разговорной практики. Желательно бесплатной. И, главное, **естественной**. Как? Немного суеты с вашей стороны, несколько часов иди дней шлепанья по клавишам – и будет вам много разговорной практики. Вот несколько советов и адресов..

1. Настоятельно советую вывесить объявление на ресурсах типа

ruadventures.com | expat.ru | virtualtourist.com/f/90a60/  | masterrussian.net/mforum/ | moscow.craigslist.org/

Текст объявления может быть таким:

“I’ll be happy to act as your guide in and around Moscow in exchange for a chance to practice English conversation. Yes, you can stay with me too! Absolutely free as long as you have patience to keep me talking and listening for a couple of hours each day”

2. Есть возможность принять дома иностранных гостей? Добавляйтесь в мой список на http://cheap-moscow.com/blog/

Есть машина, можете встретить гостей в аэропорту, повозить по городу и окрестностям? Добавляйтесь в список водителей на http://moscowdrivers.net/

Нет машины, но можете поводить гостей по городу, показать достопримечательности, помочь в решении практических вопросов? Тоже ко мне.

Любые свои предложения такого рода вывешивайте на моей доске http://www.boards2go.com/boards/board.cgi?user=unclepasha2 Там же смотрите запросы от приезжих иностранцев.

3. Станьте частью системы Hospitality Exchange. Смотрите, например,
