Worried too much!?

As my fellow English-lovers know, I've been brushing up on my skills since I gave birth. At that time, I focused on communicating with others in English. However, I have it at my fingertips now and started my new career as an English teacher. As such I've been endeavoring to attain sophisticated English ability.

Luckily I got to know a native English speaker, who is from America, the other day thanks to a friend of mine. He's come over to the English workshop that I'm a member of. I'm familiar with the American accent, so there's no trouble communicating with him. But at the same time, I wonder if he understood what I expressed in English.
After all, even though I felt that I could express what I wanted exactly, actually he or other native English speakers might not have grasped the meaning or they might have managed to understand it.....

I know, of course, I need to learn vocabulary and expressions more, though.....
Uh......I think I'll ask him about what my English is like......

How do you feel?

Hi, Pippi-san

Thank you for visiting here and giving me your comment.
>ALTs and other native English teachers working in Japan for some years can understand Japanese-English well and speak understandable English for us.

That's the point I'm worried about. I know, of course, I've not attain the level that native speakers are, though.
In addition, I'd like to know what my English is like.

>VRさんは、そのまた上の上のレベル、微妙なニュアンスとか、状況に合った単語の選び方とかを聞きたいのでしょう? 

Yes, exactly. That's one of my purposes to keep brushing up on my skills. It's a long way to go...^^;

Hello!
As you know, ALTs and other native English teachers working in Japan for some years can understand Japanese-English well and speak understandable English for us. When I went abroad and tried to make myself understood in English, I realized this. How stupid I was!
VRさんは、そのまた上の上のレベル、微妙なニュアンスとか、状況に合った単語の選び方とかを聞きたいのでしょう? 私がネイティブなら喜んで答えるなぁ。 If you ask him your concerns frankly, he will give you some good advice, I believe.
