Hi, I’m Huma there.I’ve the same problem in speaking english.Although I’ve learned English since 16 years too but whenever I try to speak I feel shy and stop it. Now a day, I practice to imrpove it through voice recording. So I choose any of the topic, for example, the teacher who influenced you most. Then for 1 minute I think about the answer and record my voice in the tape recorder. But I need the anwer from you guys that how can I build confidence? Actually I want to go abroad for higher studies and IELTS is required to get admission. But I’m afraid from IELTS due to speaking and writing. Please please help to improve my band in IELTS. Thanks

I have problems with speaking. I know how and what to say
but have big barrier. I guess it is already not language problem, it is brain broblem. Something hold me inside, make
me feel shy when I need to speak. But I want to speak English
fast so much, it is really my dream.
