I just discovered about italki and hope to get some help with my english.
I did many english courses since I was 12, but I never fell secure anought to use english without being nervous, specially at work. I love the language and I know that I´m capable of communicating, but I just stuk when I´m face to face with a situation.
What can I do to be more confident?
I read books, watch series and movies in english, but don´t have english partners... this is a problem itself.
Speaking in English is rather like swimming. You can look at as much theory as you like but there is no substitute for doing it.
The way to become confident is to start and realise you understand more than you expected.
Try to find someone patient to talk with.
A couple of minor corrections while I am answering;
felt secure enough.. fall fell fallen feel felt felt
I just get stuck...
Everybody learns a language by making mistakes. Nobody here will expect you to speak perfectly.
