    Thanks very much Olly

    I need an app to record my iTalkie lesson which is taken on Skype on my iPhone. Is there one?

    • Hi Tricia. I’m only aware of a programme that will record Skype from a computer. iPhones have so many restrictions, they don’t let you do anything “outside the box”.

      One thing you could do is use the voice recorder on a second mobile phone, and record the conversation that way. You’d need to put your Skype call on speaker, though.

        Thanks! I ended up buying a laptop today so I could use Skype with TalkHelper. Have a lesson with a new teacher tomorrow and 1 on Monday as well. 🙂

    Hi Olly,

    I have been London by 4 months. I was happy that I could immerse myself in English language. But I had to come back and now I’m afraid that I can forget my English skills ( B2). I’m trying stay with my English every moment, but that’s difficult think only in English when I have to communicate with other people with my language at work. I try speak every day with somebody, the main through Skype and also I read and I do English exercises. But to be honest Olly I’m not glad, I’m feeling I will became poorest than before. As long I’m thinking about this as my English is worst. What can I do with this? How you think that’s only my obsession or that’s true that I can forget English thinking.
