Last year I learnt Spanish in Barcelona. Spain is an ___AMAZING___ country and I enjoyed my time there very much. My flatmates were two girls from Germany. They were nice but ___COMMUNICATION___ was a real problem for us because I didn’t speak German and they didn’t speak English, my first language. Sometimes we felt absolutely ___HELPLESS___ because we were not able to understand each other. However, it gave us additional motivation to learn Spanish! Very soon my teacher told me that I was speaking it ___FLUENTLY___. He was happy with my progress. My flatmates’ grades were ___IMPRESSIVE___ too! It proved that practice is very important and if you want to speak a foreign language like a native ___SPEAKER___, you should practise it a lot.
