practice to improve complexity of speak
I'm more or less around the intermediate level (though I'm dipping into upper-intermediate more and more). I find that I can communicate pretty well but a lot of times what I say is instinctively more basic in my speech.
If I think carefully for a bit before I speak, I could say certain things with more complex structure.
I was wondering if anyone knew good ways to practice so that I could begin to develop more instinctive complex speaking patterns.
I study and mimic the chinesepod lesson dialogues pretty closely hoping the sentence structure and speech patterns will seep in which it has to a certain extent, but it doesn't seem to be enough.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
