For those who studied foreign languages, what type of activities did you enjoy the most and what type of activities were most useful in learning that language?

I'm looking at fun methods and also educational methods that work - and hopefully build something that combines both for my students. Thanks!

I took Spanish in high school and didn't do too bad but I think it would of helped if during the class we could only speak Spanish. Maybe not in the beginning but after a few weeks.

I remembered very little of it so when I had a flea market I had a hard time understanding my Spanish only speaking customers. Luckily some brought their 4 year old's with them that spoke both languages fluently. The others we both used a lot of sign language.

Thanks. I'm thinking I'll do a half session mixed language to explain the concepts and the other half where I'll mostly have convo (maybe the afternoons, to wake them up) it will be strictly in English.
