Hi Shedeen, you might be at the point where the best thing for you is input -- listening and reading. You can pick up a lot from watching movies. Watch without subtitles and see what you can learn from context. Imitate your favorite actors; pick up their speaking style.

An analogy I think of when it comes to the importance of input when you reach a plateau is like a runner. You've been running for 6 hours straight, and you think, "I'm not getting any faster." The solution is input, not necessarily more output right at that moment. In this case, the solution would be to drink some water and get some food. That's like language input -- listening and reading, recharging.

One piece of advice would be to have conversations with yourself.  This might sound weird but you would be less inhibited and could anticipate the types of conversations you would have with other people.  Of course, speaking with other English speakers is also important, but you could begin to anticipate and practice some of these conversations beforehand without the stress that sometimes accompanies having a conversation with another person.
