You don't even need to bite the bullet
I'm Jarp or my real name is Jarno. I'm a Finn and I speak Finnish most of my times. However, occasionally I speak English as well. This forum used to be a bit different, or it wasn't this forum, but I remember being that a new kid on the block when I entered to the world of English language. I can't recall when it was actually (the specific time is missing in my data) happend but I remember that I was so happy when I found Lynne's forum, like I found it now again.
It is brilliant to see how people enthusiastically want to learn English and other languages. I think some of the learners are infatuated with people who can speak English like natives and it is wonderful thing. I was so into people whose spoke fluently and presented themselves confidently. It is one reason I'm here now and can write English easily, those people inspired me to learn more and it pays off now. If I hadn't had that feeling I would ever have learnt this language. I do mistakes and you see mistakes right now, it is never perfect or spotless, there is always those little annoying typos, you know them, oh boy, they buggers me, but I can manage and it can't stop me.
I strongly believe that you can also manage and learn English language. I promise It will be awesome and you might have crazy time with it, but it can be frustraiting and you might be hopeless, but consistently every day learning, step by step and you will be succeeded.
Take care, cheers!
