Got a weird problem since lockdown, where i feel my english language skills (it's my first language) have gotten much worse since i haven't been speaking to people much. I also live with a parent who does not speak english well and i think it's affecting my language skills which used to be excellent. My writing skills and grammar is so crap now and when i speak i keep mispronouncing things and don't have a particular accent anymore (i've been watching american and foreign-language tv shows). It feels like i can barely speak english and sounds like english is my 2nd or 3rd language even i'm not speaking other languages

Is something wrong with me and how can i fix this quickly

they hardly speak fluent English, just go and hang out with them for a few weeks and try to learn how to disguise yoursleves as them. That way, you'll still get looked down upon by snobs but they'll think you're just a product of the environment.

For british TV, I love comedy so would recommend outnumbered, the IT crowd, miranda and taskmaster. Otherwise I would recommend just going places like the shops, or sitting in the park as then you will be hearing people speak. As well as that just chat to people.
