Subject: English as a Second Language
I've studied English since I was a child in school. I can read and write well, and understand most spoken English, too. Why, then, is having a conversation in English so difficult for me?
Most of the time in school, we are required to know definitions and grammar rules so that we can answer questions on tests. Even if we were lucky enough to have some practice with oral English, it was never the main focus. For you to progress in your language goals, that is going to have to change. Speaking will now become the main focus, and you will soon surprise yourself with your developing fluency.
