Focus on improvement

Not on perfection

Start slowly, talk regularly in English with friends, co-workers

Read a lot

Again start with quality books, short stories would do

From the looks of it, you seem to doing fine.

Is it someone 'projecting' on you (that you are not good enough)?
If so, do not let that get to your head.

If punctuations, nouns, pronouns are your primary concerns.. then you already are at a good enough level.
And personally, do not worry😁 about pronouns. We are already here and at most a decade or two and there would be pronoun- luidity .. to the extent that he, she will completely be replaced by the the they/them brigade.

While growing up, there was not much opportunity to have live conversations in foreign languages or at-least quality conversations.
So I took to reading.

Mau be you can try that, if that might help.
I graduated from Tintin type foreign comic books to desi printed editions of Reader's Digest and other periodicals, publications.

I was coached to keep a good dictionary, thesaurus handy.. while reading the op-ed and editorial pages in the English dailies (newspapers).
And I did🙂.

Even today, I have dummy whatsapp group called "vocabulary", with just myself as a participant.
I use it to keep noting new words, terms, phrases and try to use them later.

During my pre-internet years of reading the editorials in newspapers, periodicals and magazines.. I even ended up getting hooked to the likes of Kushwant Singh and others (editor of Debonair) after reading their articles in the publications like the Statesman, Sunday Observer, Outlook and so on.

Now of-course you have options aplenty to have casual and professional live conversations too, on-line with paid and free services
or even social platforms (for example: clubhouse) where proficient speakers and even educators in languages help one improve their spoken/ conversational skills.

If you wish you cak join such social platforms, especially voice based/ live interaction platforms to find both, free amateur help and paid professional help.
Besides of-course fellow enthusiasts and learners like yourselves.

English with Arun on TikTok or youtube ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCw-Hcpuc1pvRW5...) - Check out their content! They've started online paid sessions, but it's not necessary. There's plenty of free material available online. However, as mentioned earlier, you have to speak and practice.

I would also focus on vocabulary.

"Tinfoil hat" - Chat-GPT or other AI will be the future, so I won't be too bothered. But if you want to learn, there's no harm in it. Good luck!

a) Avoid a website/app or those fast-learning books. Read. Read just one English newspaper. Read not just articles that interest you but quickly go through everything else too. Read novels (fiction or non-fiction based on your taste) preferably from Indian authors. I recommend Chetan Bhagat despite a section of over-educated people making fun of him.

b) Get a Wren & Martin and learn grammar from it.

c) Be patient. This is not a few months journey. It will take at least a couple of years even with an hour or two of effort every day.

d) Read out aloud as well from time to time rather than just reading in your mind.

e) For the first couple of years do not focus on vocabulary. Focus on simple English and proper grammar. Vocabulary will automatically improve with time.

DO NOT attempt to learn English to show off. Learn it as a means to communicate.

P.S. - Avoid short-forms and SMS-friendly language ('u', 'Im', 'abt') when you are learning. Assume that a strict English teacher is marking you everytime you type something on the internet.

Take the unconventional approach, the child, from birth, simply listens and imitates without any focus on grammar. It responds by exposure to language, gradually picking up and eventually speaking fluently. The key here is repetition. By watching English sitcoms, repeating dialogues, and noting down new vocabulary, one can improve language skills consistently over a year.

Not a good advice joy bhai ko sitcom ki lat na lag jaye. Stay conventional use products like grammarly and see what mistakes u are making study that topic that is it.
