    Hello every one,


    I am writing a letter and would like you to check if the following sentence is correct. The main topic is helping people improve their speaking skill in English.

    Here is the sentence: Another good idea is to practice conversation with a friend of yours. The thing is that I do not know if it is better to say another idea is practicing... or another idea is by practicing...

    I look forward to reading your valuable comments.


    Best regards,
    Daniel

    "Another good idea..." is fine if there are other ideas, or at least one idea, listed before it.

    e.g. One idea is to practice in front of the mirror. Another good idea is to practice conversation with a friend of yours.

    In my opinion, "another good idea is to practice" or "another good idea is practicing" are both okay.
