Read English fiction novels

Read English fictions of your choice. Books are not costly here. You get cheap books in every nook and corner. If you want to pick up an interesting cheap English novel, go to the closest used book stores. They will generally also have old novels, books and magazines. These won’t be good quality. They will all be second-hand. But that’s okay, they will be nice and cheap. Pick up something that interests you. Take it home and read it. Be sure to look up all the new words you come across in the book.

Listen to the radio and TV

Love FM 97.5 has some good programs that are designed to teach English to the listeners.

Besides this, there are also many different radio stations available nowadays in the big cities.

Some of these radio stations are in English. Listen to them to get a feel of the language.

Besides the radio, you could also listen to news in English. It’s available on a wide variety of channels. The news is a good place to get input of the English language because it is spoken in a very clear, easy-to-understand way.

Chat with fluent English speakers

Chat with fluent English speakers real or online. Make friends with interesting English speakers. Become pen-pals with a fluent English speaker.

While talking to them look at their lip movement for tips on how to pronounce words correctly.

Most effective tip: “Think in English”

One of the most common mistakes that English learners make is, they think in their mother tongue. When they want to say something in English, they think in their mother tongue, translate it to English and then say it in English. The result is a very flawed English sentence. Never do this!

If you want to speak English fluently, you will have to learn to “think” in English. When you are constructing sentences in your mind before saying them, think in English and form them in English in your mind.
