Hi everyone I am kinda having one of those days again. There is one day every week when I don't feel quite myself. Like spacing out in classes and always deep in thought. No idea what I think about. I can't find any word to describe how I feel when I have that day. Last night , I put a question on Italki. Either because I upload too many of them every single day or almost all of them are 90 95 percent correct, with a few minor mistakes, nobody seems to want to send an answer. Now , I feel like I aint doing any progress with my english. But that is no wonder considering I have no one to practice with. Please, I beg of you, good people out there Provide a word or advice that will help me figure out what I am doing is right or wrong. I mean I am never ever satisfied with myself. I always try to be a native even though I know I cant be one , unless I go and live somewhere where I would actually use the language as much as I am supposed to be doing . My level is not so low that I should be worried or feeling the way I am now but still I cant help it. What is written above, is it natural ? Would it sound natural in speech? I know you native speakers would not say things like that. But what abouy its grammar Thank you a lot

The word you want to describe how you feel in the first paragraph is "out of it". That's what we say in the US. "One day every week, I'm out of it." When we talk about progress, we need to use the verb 'make' not 'doing' progress. I think your questions are always excellent, but remember that natives aren't always available on the community depending on the time of day and many times, the native teachers and tutors are busy teaching classes so we don't get to see them right away. You're doing great! The way you expressed yourself above sounded very natural. Try not to be a perfectionist. Though it is good to motivate a person to always do better, it can be come extreme and discouraging. Be happy with your successes and remember that even native speakers don't speak perfectly. Just keep going :) Even if you move to an English-speaking country, that doesn't guarantee that you will really speak. I speak from experience :) Stay positive!

No idea what I think about it. I can't find any word to describe how I feel when I have that day. Last night, I put a question on Italki. Either I upload too many of them every single day or almost all of them are 90 - 95 per cent correct, with a few minor mistakes, nobody seems to want to send an answer. Now, I feel like I ain't doing any progress with my English. That is why I am considering not having anyone to practice with.

Your speech is natural. That's how you feel. The grammar isn't bad. Keep practising with time you will be better.👍
