I have to agree with you though - nothing beats the real thing, i.e. talking to a native speaker on a regular basis. Listening and reading will help you to hone your comprehension and vocab skills, but you need to speak the language as well.
It's overwhelming the number of sites and such online, isn't it. You're right though... nothing beats chatting face to face.
