Can I perfect the languages of my choice by using the shadowing method?

Hello everybody. I want to speak many languages like native speakers and become a conference interpreter. Despite being on many platforms such as




, etc., I can't make friends with native speakers. They either chat with me for a few weeks or never respond. So I think, I have to walk on another path that leads to my goals. I have heard of the shadowing method. What do you think? Is it possible to perfect my speaking skills by using the shadowing method.

    That's an advanced technique used to improve pronunciation. You have to know the language first.

    Parrotting may improve your pronunciation, but it will not teach you how to independently construct phrases from words that you know
