How do I improve a non-native language?

 Sure, writing is important, but reading, listening and conversation with others who are doing the same language are far less frustrating ways to learn a language. I know, learning 5 languages through my life, that writing was always more difficult because you might not know the spelling or the vocabulary - it's a lot easier to get caught up and doubt your abilities like that. So by creating a situation in which either you're passivley taking in the language (reading or listening) to learn pronounciation and spelling, or in a more relaxed environment with someone you're not afraid of messing up infront of (for conversational purposes), you start building your confidence and slowly but surely, your language skills improve!
