This study measures the impact of consistent & sustained oral interaction (via remote interaction) with native speakers of the target language on macro-linguistic skills of learners studying intermediate Spanish. Participants belonged to either the TalkAbroad-7 group or the TalkAbroad-2 group. Using the Avant Stamp Test, learners’ macro-language skills (i.e., reading, writing, listening & speaking) were quantitatively measured before & after treatment. Results of the data suggest that consistent & sustained oral interaction with native speakers significantly impacted learners’ listening skills.
