I feel uncomfortable striking up a random conversation with a random stranger on the Internet. So I am thinking of using monologues to improve my speaking.
The obvious strategy that crossed my mind was sit down every evening and describe my day in the target language. The problem with that approach is, after a while it's going to get very repetitive ("I got up at 6.30 and brushed my teeth..."). Not that many exciting things happen in my life everyday.
The other alternative is to just sit down for 30 minutes, and say whatever comes to my mind in the target language. This might result in some unfocused effort as I struggle to think what to think next.
- Any other ideas to implement a systematic way of practising monologues for a dedicated period of time every day?
- If I struggle to find a word in my TL, should I carry on nonetheless, say it in my native language for the time being, note it down for later,...?
