Hi guys

actually I don't know how to start explaining my problem.
I've been here (Australia) for 5 months learning English everyday.
The real problem that I've got is a hesitation when I speak to people who I don't know.
I feel that I am a good speaker of English but when I should speak to people who I don't know I get confused. I tried to fix this problem up but I couldn't.

Another thing is that I am good at writing, I can communicate with people using the Internet. My sentences are not so bad. I have a friend (a native speaker of English) and he's told me that I speak a good English. I answered that I am good at writing only.

Finally I every time get confused starting the conversations with people who I don't know especially if it happens in shops and such situations. I don't know how to ask people about things in particular. Also I don't know how to use conjunctions (but, and, that, while..) and other grammar types (what, which, how etc). I'm a good at English and I know that I've done my course just in 2 months (Academic level ) but I don't know why I am so afraid of speaking to people who I don't know. I'd like very much to speak English fluently and I know that I can make it, but I need someone who is able and willing to help me do that.

So, can you please advise me how I can overcome these problems.

Speak the way you are able to at the moment and wait.

I've got no any native English speaker here in Bosnia to speak to that I am going to wait much longer.
