Practice makes a man perfect
As we know that there’s no magic way of learning English, you need to know that you have to work on it a lot.

In case you want to study all by yourself, there are plenty resources available to you, and in case you prefer a little bit more structure, you can consider a supplement English course. Keep practicing as much as you can in order to get a firm grip on the language.
Recognise your motivation behind learning English
Like any other goal, learning a new language is always more fun and easier when you have an ultimate reason to do so. You should stay focused on the reason that motivates you since that is what will help you get through when learning the language seems tough. For instance, are you learning English in order to get a job, or are you learning the language for traveling to a specific place? Or do you simply want to learn it in order to challenge yourself? Regardless of whatever is motivating you, don’t lose sight.
Try to surround yourself with English-speaking people
You don’t need to be in an English-speaking country in order to surround yourself with this language. Find out different ways of making English a part of your regular routine, when you’re outside and even when you’re at home. When you go out for shopping, write down the shopping list in English, try to read an English newspaper, listen to the radio, watch English movies and operate your cell phone in English.
Get online and sign up with an English-teaching course
Get online and you can get in touch with people who are located in different places around the world. How about joining chat rooms or participating in forums where you can speak with different people and learn their language and sentence construction as well. Or you may even find a pen pal to practice English while you can use his knowledge to learn about various cultures.
Start writing a blog in English
Once you think you have enough command over the language English, you can start writing a blog or even maintaining a diary. When you either write a blog or keep a diary it becomes the best way of practicing regularly. This way you can even enhance your grammar skills, as writing will definitely improve the ability to speak English. Just choose a light and fun-filled easy topic so that you don’t find it extremely difficult to pen down your feelings. In case you’re a perfectionist who doesn’t like making mistakes, you can share your blog with native speakers and ask them to spot the mistakes and correct them. This will leave room for improvement.
Therefore, if you are among those who are extremely eager to learn English, make sure you follow the above mentioned tips and advice. Start speaking in English whenever you master the art of writing in this language without making grammatical errors.
