We can learn English on our own, but what we can’t really do on our own is speak. Speaking practise is so important when it comes to learning a language and feeling confident when using it. The more speaking in a foreign language you do, the more comfortable you will feel. I offer online English-speaking classes on Skype and Zoom to help you boost your confidence when speaking English. Each lesson is a different topic and you can even choose the topics yourself if you like. You find the topics here. All you need is Skype or Zoom and a willingness to speak English with a native speaker and online English teacher from the UK.
