Why do sometimes I have a hard time getting words out?
When I'm with my bestfriend words are flying out of my mouth but it's not the case with some of my classmates, my instructor and other people. Is it just because I'm self conscious? How do I get rid of self-consciousness?

Yes, could be a symptom of self consciousness. All I can suggest is to ask yourself "Why am I not self conscious with my buddy but am when I am around other people?" My guess is that you feel comfortable with your buddy because s/he accepts you.
Self consciousness with strangers can be lessened by focusing on the other person, not yourself. Instead of worrying about whether or not they will accept you, show them they have credibility with you by getting them to talk about themselves, be a good listener and so forth, and perhaps you will gain credibility with them. It's like the Zen saying: "To use the self is to forget the self."
