What is the secret behind a solid TOEFL speaking score?
I feel the key to getting a good TOEFL speaking score is being able to have a normal conversation before trying to master the format. In this way, you increase the naturalness of your speech.
What is your favorite part of Spanish?
My favorite part of Spanish is the versatility of the language. Most things in Spanish have double meanings, so it's possible play around with the language and fool people because frequently, they don't know exactly what your saying. It's a very poetic language.
Would you recommend a friend to study Portuguese or Spanish first? Why?
I would recommend my friend to study Portuguese first because Portuguese has almost all of the sounds that Spanish has but not vice-versa. So most Brazilians can understand Spanish speakers but not the other way around. Therefore, I believe that the translation from Portuguese to Spanish is much easier than Spanish to Portuguese.
