Hi Naufragis, you are right - it’s much easier to follow and understand a conversation or story than expressing something. You can observe this with children too: They sometimes seem to understand quite a lot although their active vocabulary might still be limited.
There a lot of ways you can improve your language skills, it’s a bit like a sport. You engage in a variety of activities and you practise on a regular basis. It’s important to keep a balance between accuracy and fluency. You might know all the grammar rules by heart but that doesn’t mean you can speak the language fluently. On the other hand you might be quite capable of expressing your thoughts but especially when you have to create a piece of written work you see your limitations.[YSaerTTEW443543]
