Don’t be afraid to sound silly! Trying to speak a language is one of the most important hurdles to overcome!
Fear is the main point that slows down the early stages of language learning for many a learner; a fear of actually using the language…

When we start a language, most will be dreaming of confidently chatting with native speakers, weaving beautiful sentences with ease, without stopping to think in our first language. Yet despite the usual (and completely understandable!) main goal of using the language, nearly everyone tends to spend a good while flicking through a textbook instead.
That drag through the textbook also tends to go on a bit longer than originally intended. Why? People are generally concerned of ‘reaching a certain level’ before they can talk.
