In our opinion, there many of the best English books in Spanish. There is not enough of practice. Therefore, to fill this gap buy other reference books with practical exercises in the Spanish language. Or try to use your knowledge every day everywhere when you have a chance. For example talk to people or find particular church or other place where you can try to use your language skills.

Learning French improves your English!Learning any language improves your feel for language in general. Also, when we use a word of French origin in English it tends to have a ‘higher’ meaning. An ‘envoy’ is really just a messenger (from the French envoyer – ‘to send’), but is mostly used in international politics and diplomacy. There are many such examples but the point is that learning a word in French will often also teach you or refresh for you the meaning of a ‘high register’ English word. So learning French can actually have a positive impact on your English!
