    Default How speak English like I was born and raise in the US?

    Well, I'm an international student and I've been in the US for almost two years. I have a problem communicating with my friends. The problem is when I speak in front of them, I felt like I was some kinds of joke. Then I started stammering and couldn't speak clearly. I know that because I didn't feel confident, but whenever I talk, my English doesn't sound like American people. Would anyone please give me an advice to deal with this, what do I need to do to speak English like an American and how? Please, answer. Thank you.

    Most language learners go through that period of intense embarrassment and hesitation, particularly when you're good enough to start having high expectations. Keep up the good work, and in 2 more years it will seem easy.
