If you feel nervous when speaking Spanish, it’s probably due to a lack of confidence in your skills. The obvious solution is to improve your Spanish, but there are also other ways to increase your confidence and feel more comfortable speaking Spanish.

Learn, then practice, practice, practice!

It probably won’t come rushing back all at once, but you can relearn it much more quickly than if you were starting out without that previous knowledge.
