I allways to teach oneself English,but have just Little progress
On Italki, you can write a notebook entry. You can write about yourself or your hobbies. You could write about a movie, or tell a story. English speakers can then correct your writing. You can learn new words and new rules of grammar.
I allways always try to teach oneself myself English, but I have made just a little progress.

If you are teaching yourself, you are doing great! 加油！
I speak German, Chinese and English on a native level (and a bit Spanish). Regardless what language you are learning. The best way to learn is to just talk to native speakers A LOT imo.
What few if any, of the teaching materials for language will tell you, is that you must also learn basic Ideas as the basis for your spoken and written English. Without a knowledge of basic Ideas and Concepts, you are just lost in a sea of words.
I use a basic classfication system for my knowledge, when I speak and write.
(a) Science (b) Philosophy (c) Theology (d) Law
These are basic. You could add History, Fine Art, Business and so on, but this becomes a little to extended for some students of a second language although there is nothing wrong with studying these as part of your effort. If any of that seems frightening or intimidating to you, it will explain why I suggest songs and nursery rhymes for beginning study material. The mind must be developed gradually. One must learn to walk before one can learn to run.
When I practice with a student Engela, I will read over the words and explain meanings
and then I will have the student listen to the song.
Usually it can be found on YouTube. Not all students have access to YouTube, but they can sometimes find the songs on video on another website. Sometimes I sing the song for the student.
Songs should be repeatedly read by the student as part of their practice. The words should come easily.
That is how the student develops. It also allows for a gradual development of vocabulary.
After that, the movie musicals can be used. These can be alternated with the study of short essays.
I usually have my own essays written to develop the mind of the student.
A great deal of this material can be found in my Notebook Entries. Feel free to use it if you think it might help.
