Hello I wanted to ask how you can speak easier with locals. I get very nervous and switch to english when I talk to them
Sorry for asking for lingots I didnt know it was not allowed
Speak with yourself, practice a little with friends, decide on what sentences/words you want to say when you go to the store for example, and try it out. You can always let people know that you're practicing their language, I've never met anyone who's offended by that, it's usually warmly welcomed.
Just take your time, if need to build some confidence first, try with a friend. :)
