Yes, you definitely should.

Well, it depends on you.It is not necessary all should be taught by teachers.If you can get a good language partner then it will be easy for you to learn the language.So there is no compulsory and mandatory policy here for learning language from a teacher.There are a discussion forum,Q&A forum and notebook forum here.So any question arises in your mind,you can ask it in Q&A forum and you will get the response from teachers and other users also.And in notebook forum,you can write a paragraph of your own and people are there to help you out in finding the error in your text.So it's a nice language learning hub.So enjoy learning languages here:)Thank you:)

Since you want to learn a very popular language, i.e. a language that lots of people want to learn, it's probably best if you try to find a good professional teacher, yes. Finding a language partner who is really interested in teaching you, and who is willing and able to explain grammar rules, use of tenses, etc., is definitely much easier for those who want to learn a less popular language.

Hello Ahmed ! This really depends on what you are looking to achieve. In my opinion it would perhaps be useful to find a professional or community teacher (Like me :P)  and try a few lessons to see if they could help you understand what you are struggling with.

 I myself teach English online and find that most of the time my students just want someone to have a conversation with and to practice with. Once they have 4-5 lessons with me they then feel more confident and ready to venture out to have language exchange partners. A tutor most the time will move at your pace and be more considerate, as opposed to a language exchange partner who wants a 50/50 split of the time.

 I hope this helped in some way and if you are looking for a casual, young and easy going tutor to help you gain confidence in speaking English feel free to contact me mate.

 Good luck!

For me, having a professional teacher is valuable, particularly when I'm just starting to learn a language. A good teacher will provide a structured approach to learning and can clearly explain grammar points or usage rules in the target language. They also generally have a wide range of resources from which to draw.
