Have conversations with your parents. Tell them to correct you when you get something wrong.

Hey I learned mostly through listening to my parents as a kid because they spoke it to each other. I then started talking it to my parents sometimes and picked up fluency. I too have no idea how to read or write the language, but luckily speaking is the easiest thing to pick up through daily life. Try picking up keywords in conversation and go from there applying the same words yourself.

pick up words from your parents or learn with siblings as i wanted to learn urdu and I just said urdu sentences as I had picked words from my parents and siblings and that was more easier to learn
