Firstly, sometimes it is difficult to express my ideas fluently because I don’t master enough vocabularies. Secondly, learning a new language needs daily practices and I am unable to find a native speaker to talk with. Finally, it is a little hard to keep studying when there is nothing motivates you to do it.

First, sometimes it is difficult to fully express my ideas because I simply do not know enough vocabulary. Second, learning a new language--especially speech--requires daily practice, and I am unable to find a native speaker to talk with. Finally, under those conditions, it is somewhat hard to find the motivation to keep studying a language when there seemingly will never be a need to use it.
Hi Susie. Good job! Yes, everything that you wrote is true, but if that opportunity comes, wouldn’t you like to be prepared to take it? You will only be able to do that, however, if you continue your study of the language. Read more, and read aloud to yourself, as you will then not only increase your vocabulary, but also give your tongue and mouth muscles the practice they need to speak properly. It may seem like you are on a long and lonely road by yourself, but look at all the other people here on iTalki who are also learning English. Once you find a partner or two (or more!), learning will become much easier, I promise. Good luck. P.S. In the US, we overwhelmingly use “first” rather than “firstly,” on the scale of 524.56 to 1 per COCA.
