Does having a pal speaking in German helps?
I've been learning German for quite some times now. but I'm still far from being able to have a conversation in German. I've heard that having a friend who knows German might help but I don't see how! If he speaks in German I won't be able to understand 60% to 70% of what he'll say and I can't ask him to translate every sentence either (that's too much).
So my question is : Does it really help to have a friend speaking in German with you if you're a beginner? or that's something for more advanced people? And if so, Do you have any suggestion on where I can find such a friend, (facebook groupe, chat website...)
