    If you can't make a mistake, you can't make anything.

    So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can.
    Because that's where you will find success. On the far side of failure.

    There are lots of proverbs or quotes about making mistakes.You can find more on the web.So there is nothing wrong with making mistakes,the problem is not fixing them.

    An other thing that I can say that if you want to overcome your fear about making some(or huge) mistakes in a conversation, maybe what you should do is hearing more inputs (from movies,tv shows etc.).This helps you to make use of commonplace word groups rather than reconstructing them.

    Be sure that all people learn through mistakes. No one learns without making mistakes. Through mistakes, we know where we are and how much is left for us.

    All that you need to do is work hard and never give up. There are many ways which can help you improve your language. First, you have to practise a lot by trying to speak in English with your friends. Second, you need to listen to native speakers speaking English in order to get inspired by them. Try to chat with native Speakers if possible, they will help you for sure.

    Remember, we all started from nothing, and we are still improving ourselves.

    I hope the above advice will help you .

    dear miss qatar please do not be afraid to make mistakes. it is life. i am a native english speaker and would be more than happy to help with any problems you may have. forgive my writing style as i have the use of only one hand and it is just easier for me to write in lower case without the grammar. i am not a teacher but i am educated well. my job is as a receptionist at a very busy health centre.

    It's not bad to make mistakes but it's bad not to learn from them.just know that you are not the only one who makes mistakes but all of us, most of all if you want your language perfect you should practice as much as possible,practice makes it perfect.
    Good luck !

    You should prepare yourself for that time,practice many times at home or any other place before you go and imagine yourself as if you are in front of them.
    Nido Qubein the public speaker said that he invests about 100 hours before he speaks in front of the public,so it's all about practicing.
    Don't forget to create a positive self image before you go,it helps .
    Good luck !
