Fear of Talking to Other People Besides My Family

I am an eleven-year-old girl and I've always been the shy/quiet type and that means I don't talk to other people that much. I live in Japan, and I don't know the language that well.

So when somebody asks me a non-yes-or-no question(I usually nod my head or shake my head), I have trouble getting the words out. Even when I want to say something, the words don't come out that easily and that might make them lose interest. I wish I could get my lips unsealed so I can respond quicker..

I also have a fear of getting my hands dirty or greasy. That's why I carefully put the dishes in without getting my hands dirty. I also have a fear of my hands smelling like what I ate, so I wash my hands with body soap.
