"Jasmine, you're right, but keep in mind that if and when you get a native English speaker to talk with you, the quality you get from him/her will depend on how much you are investing in that teacher to help you refine your skills. …"

"Very true, but sometimes it's hard to speak with 'foreign' accent while talking with colleagues and friends because sometimes they will think you're showing off. "

Use your memory to learn the new words but learn them very well.  Use…
