How to Improve your Foreign Language Immediately is, imo, one of the most useful resources there is for those who are actually trying to speak. I bought it on amazon a few years ago, so I was surprised to see it was available free. It's full of tried and true conversation techniques, which I'm sure would be called hacks these days. Highly recommended.
I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.
Thank you for sharing!
