You didn't know why? So you solved this problem or is that an error. Well if you've solved it good for you, and how so what did you figure out was the problem? If you didn't then, well first you have to figure out why you don't want to speak English. Is it because you think you'll sound funny?Maybe because you think you might mess up on saying a couple important words or even forget words in a sentence. If its those your worried about what others think, and you shouldn't be. Just know you're great and many people don't know two languages.
Practice, write words that you find hard to pronounce and practice them daily, then join them into a sentence. You can also play English games and repeat the words. To help the situation, you need to talk in English anytime you want something, this way you will get used to it.

One reason that children are successful in learning foreign languages is that they are NOT self-conscious. They easily imitate what they hear. But grown people's self-consciousness holds them back from doing so. You should practice English speaking (both solo and to others) to gradually forget that you're talking another language (get used to talking in English)
I would feel awkward speaking Spanish because I don't know the language very well so I understand how you feel. Most people love to help with language and I don't think anyone would find your mistakes funny. You are impressive as you are trying to learn a second language. Good for you. Stay with it.
