To make the language understand in writing there are various tools made online that will help the user to write the language properly and many courses are there that will remove the hesitation of the people while speaking. It happens sometimes that it hard for some people to speak English. It just because they are very good at other languages or they have not studied a particular language. Therefore poor communication in writing is also the major issue that comes when speaking because the user is not able to think in English (Sani et. al, 2020).
Attitude and ego: the working of the team is deterred because of the ego & attitude of the team member. There may be members who want to prevent other people from speaking with their minds.

Due to many factors also sometimes the language beginners don’t even try to speak because they think that if they will speak and if they speak the incorrect wordings then all the people will aught at them and will make fun of them.
Passive learning: It means that hearing of the talks without empathizing it or understanding it.
