There are a few phrases in your target language that you should have handy, either memorized on the tip of your tongue, or on a “cheat-sheet” (perhaps a text file on your computer). If you don’t know them now, then you can ask your teacher at the start of the lesson. Using these phrases will enable you to stay in your target language even if you run into issues:

Could you please repeat that?

Please don’t speak to me in English.

Could you please say that in another way?

Could you please speak a little more slowly?

Etc.

Try to talk as much as possible! As a tutor i can tell you that lessons aren't much fun when you're having a very one-sided conversation. That's really it though, apart from that, just try to have fun

What Johannes said. It’s okay to be nervous, but try not to let your nerves keep you from talking (and/or doing the other exercises or activities in your lesson). Mistakes are a sign that you are speaking enough to make them, and they are info to help you and your teacher know what needs to be explained or corrected.

Enjoy!
