Using new words

Does anyone use the new words you have learned in your 'stream'? I haven't seen too many people doing this. Do you practice writing and how do you do it?

I started using that but quit because you don't get any feedback as to whether or not you have done it correctly. I guess it would be up to your "followers" to correct you.

Oh that sounds good. For speaking, I also found The Pronunciator. Much better voice recognition to check your Spanish orally.

It is pretty funny. I guess it is British. It was a little hard to get it working. Directions aren't that clear. Give permission for RealPlayer or whatever, to access your mic. You can choose for it to evaluate your imitation of a word. If you choose "coaching" you get some British voice saying, "Great job, fantastic" "Maybe you need to try again" That part is useless. But it grades your pronunciation in percentages under the Pronunciation Analysis section.
