To begin, I always felt that words and phrases were much needed in speaking. In order to begin learning, you have to try speaking it. So my challenge to you is… practicing speaking!
I’ll provide some words and phrases that’ll be helpful. But if you want to learn the language, you got to step out of that box and learn to speak. I’ll give a word a day and a phrase a week. That should help you get going.
Speak when you’re comfortable though. Nobody can force you to do but just try. The more you try the more at ease you’ll become.
Try. Try. Try!
