I still unable to speak in proper English.
Actually English speaking is simple, I often to speak, and couldn't speak out.

Can I used actually in this situation?
How to say English speaking is using simple word and I do speak in wrong way because I didn't use proper grammar and it makes my speaking is hard to understand.

Tommaso:

I would rather have 20 students just like you than one perfect student who can speak well but won't try. Your willingness to want to learn will help you to succeed. Keep using your language and with time it will improve.

No child begins to speak even their native tongue without going through a long period of doing it poorly. They keep trying and using their language and over time it improves.

Keep it up, ask people to help you say things properly and then practice. You will do fine.

Hi tommaso.

Yes.

"Actually" means 'in truth', 'in fact', 'really'.

What is your own language? ('tommaso' sounds Italian, but your phrasing - the way you use words - does not seem like an Italian 'style')

A hint: "I often + to speak (a to-infinitive)" is not possible. Perhaps
you wanted to say "I often try to speak, but ...".

A simple way to improve your English may be to watch movies in English with subtitles in your native language. You have to watch the same movie repeatedly a couple of times.
First day: Watch the movie listening to conversations without paying much attention to their meanings, but following strictly on the subtitles.
Second day: Watch the movie again, paying attention to conversations try to understand their meanings, and paying less attention to the subtitles.
Third day: Watch the movie with subtitles in English.
Last day: Watch the movie without subtitles, and pay attention to what conversations you can follow.

It would be advisable to watch movies with daily conversations.

The most important criteria in learning English is persistence. If you do not give up in the first bend, you will succeed.

It is very useful to enroll a proper course in English language. Only then your persistence will pay-off. Using wrong grammar repeatedly may not improve your English but rather cemented it.

Thommaso - more advice:-

There are many students here who, like you, are just starting to learn English.
Read their posts and the questions they ask as well. Don't just read your own questions and answers. You will learn a lot from other people's questions and answers.

If you already do this then GREAT! You are already closer to learning better English than when you joined this Forum!

Just keep studying and keep on asking questions. And NEVER think that a question is "too silly" to ask! Ask as much as you can.
