I've certainly improved my English since I came to US...
My biggest issues are using the right tenses... I think I use the present perfect and pp continuous tenses more than I should. I feel better speaking than writing as I haven't done a proper study of the language. I did an intermediate English course in Venezuela that helped me a lot to survive but it wasn't enough later on.
And that's one of my problem too, Lucia. I speak Spanish really fast and I try to do the same in English... doesn't help at all. But also, try to talk to a New Yorker in a very slow pace... that's impossible. :cunao:

Ive started practicing writing English now with blog articles in LinkedIn. The first one is about job hunting from an introvert perspective. If I have to reread it, I'll probably delete it now. :oops: :lol:

10/10 article, Lucía.

"One clear example is language level. If asked if my level is proficiency or first level/advanced, my answer is usually advanced since I know I would fail, as many English speakers would as well, the Proficiency (CPE) exam even though I know many people speaking worst English than mine say that’s their level."

I completely relate to this. Every time someone asks about my level I always say "hmm, I'm not sure, maybe B2" even though I have an advanced certificate and I'm studying for the CPE. My American friends have told me that my English is pretty good and yet I never feel confident enough when it comes to job interviews or things like that. I guess my confidence and skills would improve once I spend more time in a place where everyone speaks English, but for now I'll have to put up with the fact that people with a worst level than mine have way more confidence and they tend to get the jobs I'd like to have but never apply to because of my shyness. :|


You go girl!
You know there is a saying "Fake it till you make it!" And it works! You will be able to build confidence for sure. Just go for it, make mistakes, let people correct you and just get natural.
You know what could help too? Read out loud, practice your pronunciation along with your accent. Do it by yourself first and then maybe join one of those clubs that you'll usually find in a library or bookshop.. where everyone speak and read in english.
There're a lot of steps in the learning process that I missed and I wish I would've done. I jump basically from basics to look for a job that requires proeficiency and get it but finding myself in awkwards situations. And it won't be fixed until I get proper education, so do whatever you can do right now to learn and let the shyness for Spanish triste. :cunao:

Yes, a good article and I agree.

It happens to me too.
