Stop Negative Thinking!
"I will never learn English", "I'm stupid, I always make mistakes" or "I never know what to say" is very bad thinking. What is more – bad thinking makes bad things happen. It's time for really positive thoughts: "English is difficult but I will get it soon", "Step by step and I will be better in talking and writing", "I don't know what to say but I will try to think of how to say it in other words".
Do not translate everything to your language
If you hear something, don't translate it to your native language. Translating everything is slowing progress. You should focus on contextual clues and words you understand. That will help you to figure out what it means.
Never say "I don't speak English"
If you are affraid of speaking English or you don't understand something never say "I don't speak English". Say "Could you repeat, please?", "Could you speak a little slower?", "What does ______ mean?" or rephrase what you heard, ask for more information and try to understand it from the context.
