How to be confident about talking to people in English
1) Cheat, use skype and write down all the thing you are going to say and then work your way through the list, smile a lot and realise the other person has the same fears
um,,, that's it
Fear is natural, part of learning is finding ways to overcome the fear
I believe one way to be self confident to talk to people, is to give yourself permission to make mistakes. Mistakes are a part of the learning process and we should not be embarrassed by them. If you ever observe babies learning to speak, you will notice how confident and eager they are to speak. If they waited to be confident, perhaps they wouldn’t learn as quickly.
When learning anything new, we should allow ourself to be as bold as the babies :) You could perhaps start by speaking English with friends, family, people close to you. But more than anything else, be fearless and start speaking English. The more you speak, more you will improve. Cheers!!
