  • Talk to yourself
    Talk about anything and everything. Do it in the privacy of your own home. If you can't do this at first, try reading out loud until you feel comfortable hearing your own voice in English.

  • Record your own voice
    This might feel very uncomfortable, but it will help you find your weak pronunciation points. Listen to yourself a few days later. Which sounds do you have difficulty hearing?

  • Use the telephone.

  • Participate in class

  • Learn common idioms

  • Understand the sounds that your language doesn't have
    For example, many languages don't have the "r" sound. These sounds require extra practice.

  • Recognize that teachers are trained to understand you
    When you get out into the real world, average people will have a more difficult time understanding you unless you practise speaking slowly and with proper pronunciation.

  • Practise minimal pairs

  • Study word and sentence stress

  • Practice tongue twisters

The biggest problem most people face in learning a new language is their own fear. They worry that they won't say things correctly or that they will look stupid so they don't talk at all. Don't do this. The fastest way to learn anything is to do it again and again until you get it right. Like anything, learning English requires practice.Try learning new words and use them in your daily conversions.

I recommend you to check www.vocabularybuilding.org. Its a great site, contains lots of words, learning videos and tips as well.
