Using English includes reading, listening, watching, writing, and speaking. You can enjoy watching movies, videos, and drams in English and directly with the actors' and actresses' voices. You can also enjoy reading books and articles in English, rather than reading the translated versions. I do enjoy both watching and reading things in English as much as in Japanese. There is no distinction between Jap and English for me to get information and enjoy the content.
Speaking is, of course, is fun and exciting. After all, humans enjoy interacting with others. So, speaking isn't just a skill. It is one of the ways to express your thoughts and feelings. The best way to learn to speak is to use the phrases and expressions you've learned. It's not easy to develop speaking skills as you don't usually speak English in your daily life. But keep practicing, you'll have chances to use and improve your speaking skills.

現状の分析や個々の状況も踏まえずに、過去の慣習からあれもこれもやっておけと勧める大人が多いが、足すことはうまく出来ること、出来るようになることが減ることになる。個人のニーズや状況に合わせて目的、計画、効果をよく考慮して始めること。
例えば入試だからと言って、それらが入試や将来に必要かどうかを個人の進路に関わらず文法、単語、和訳、英訳問題集や塾を単に加えるとは、他の学習をする時間が減ることになる。入試問題集、文法問題集、春季講習、センター対策
