@op. Uummmm. Your English seems pretty strong already. Like, better than some native English speakers ( writers, posters, whatever. )

One thing I found is generally people learning english can write well, but when it comes to speaking, it becomes broken. Not sure how that even is possible but i seen it haha.

Well, that's interesting. Can't say I've ever heard of such a phenomenon.

What games do you play?

I don't have a PS Plus account right now, because I was barely using it. Essentially all of my online gaming is on Xbox. But, I'd love an excuse to re-subscribe.

I play a wide variety of games: visual novels, JRPGs, FPS... I'm going to try Destiny 2 now that it's free on PS Plus.

We could play Fortnite (never played it) or another game that doesn't require a subscription first.

Bralod is Brazilian. I don't know if he's good at speaking english but he might be able to help.
@BraLoD

Me speaks no engrish.

OT: You mean actual conversation? I have zero practice with that, might help you get worse actually, lol.

I also don't have PS+, or a headphone.

Boa sorte.

Two different areas of the brain plus with writing you can take much longer and think in between words, speaking in conversation doesn't have the leeway writing does, think of it this way, a person with a stutter doesn't write with a stutter. :D No phenomenon, The OP just needs to speak for a while to get it all to click and eventually flow.

I herd it happens with people who are singers too (not drunk amateurs haha).  They can since a song in english and have no accent or mess up pronunciations. The moment they start talking they get their natural accent back and broken pronunciations for words. Apparently the way you sing and the way vocal cords work.

I'll take your word for that. It makes sense. But are there not variations from person to person as far as how they learn, with some being stronger visual learners and some being stronger auditorily? It's 6am and I'm slightly hung over.

Yeah. That's something I've noticed throughout my life.

I suppose so, everyones different and people who learn verbally first will obviously have the advantage there.

I'm not really a singer technically, but I can confirm this.
