    Adrenaline is also known as epinephrine. It's a hormone secreted by the medulla of the adrenal gland, especially in times of STRESS or EXCITEMENT and in response to fright or shock.

    A "Shot of Adrenaline" is often administered

    Perfect grammar might be impressive, but it may also just be a well-memorized phrase. ¡Hola! Me llamo Linda. Soy de Frankfort. ¿y tú? ¿De dónde eres?
    Don't do vocabulary lists, matching, games or activities with isolated words - vocabulary should always be in a relevant, meaningful context. The doctor will never ask you to name your body parts. He'll ask "What hurts?" The hotel receptionist will never ask you to name the furniture in your room, but you may need to ask for an extra towel or say that the toilet doesn't flush.

    6. Alway seek out elaboration. "Tell me more."
    5. Let pauses and lulls happen. They may need to process. If I talk less, they'll talk more. If I'm talking, they're not!
    4. Listen.Listen carefully. How do
    3. Insist on circumlocution. If they don't know the word, don't supply it. Ask them to define or describe it.
    2. Practice ASKING and answering questions. For the L2 learner coping in the real world, asking questions may be more useful than answering them. EX: ¿Dónde está el baño?
