    I often use C’est possible que and je pense que… It’s a good tip with replacing que with de and infinitive even though it wouldn’t come naturally to me at this stage. Also being a beginner the conversation doesn’t flow naturally and it sometimes makes me stop talking. (well I met a nice french guy a few weeks ago and I found that my language skills developed suddenly quite dramatically so maybe it’s a question of a motivation ?;-) )
