I'm having a problem with pronunciation in English. I also stutter when speaking in English because I'm afraid of making grammar mistakes while speaking. 

It is a huge difficulty for me to remember phrasal verbs and expressions. I watch TV shows in English and I couldn't understand a big part of content.

I've been learning a foreign language for years, not as a hobby but to be able to work and function in a new society. Whether English of any other language fear itself is possibly the greatest difficulty, embracing the fact you will make mistakes and just going for it anyway is really the best way to go. Also anything which exposes you to lots of comprehensible, fluent input is good, TV series with subtitles in English to improve your English, that will little by little get your fluency skills up so you can gradually process language more and more like a native speaker, good luck,

Sentence formation and Grammatical mistakes is what we generally struggle about in english


When it comes to speaking the most common problem is listening. We cannot listen properly. As of result we are not able to give a proper reply.

Fear of mistakes

Even if you know everything in a proper manner, but you have fear in mind for mistakes. And this is the common difficulties in speaking english.

The genenal cause that makes the task of speaking English difficult for the English learners is the environment around them. Especially in India, the environment around does not support the learners to speak English frequently. The environment here is no one else but the people around. Few people make fun of you when you try to speak in English, few might judge you on your mistakes while others will think that you are just trying to show off when you use English in your daily conversation. Right?
However, this is not the only issue. There are few other difficulties which resist you from speaking a fluent and decent English, which include:
1. Fear of committing mistakes:
This is the biggest and foremost issue which keep many English learners away from speak English confidently even if they already know the basic English. The think that if they commit any mistake, others will laugh on them or insult them. This keeps them away from practicing spoken English and they end up with all the hopes. 
However, this is not desirable. It is merely normal for a non-native speaker of English to commit mistakes while learning English because English is not his mother tongue. Therefore, just speak out without any fear of making mistakes.
2. No words to express your insights:
Due to a lack of a decent vocabulary, at times it might happen that you do not get words to express yourself. 
You should learn new words daily, a command of words can benefit your life in many ways. When you have command on large vocabulary words, you can express yourself easily.
3. Lack of practice:
Moreover, the major difficulty is due to lack of practice of spoken English. To speak a fluent English, you need to practice English on a daily basis. If you are not able to find people around you to converse in English with, you can prefer some English practice app like EngVarta(https://engvarta.com) where you can practice English with experts over the phone itself.
A daily practice can make you used to the language and gradually you will get fluent in the language and start speaking naturally.

Thanks for the replies folks, betting 4 to 1 that engvarta post is promotional, am learning Arabic now by the way :)
