From my experience I have found that it is well worth spending a large portion of the lesson speaking, with the aim of improving fluency. If you don't have someone to speak with you can stand in front of the mirror and just talk about anything and everything. Make this a daily habbit. Once you get over the fear of speaking in English then you can start recording yourself to see what gramatical mistakes you are making. Or you can book me in for a conversaional lesson.
