when it comes to spoken English. So here I would like to share some tips to
improve your spoken English.

Translate (although sometimes you will realize funny translation). Translate
and listen to the correct pronunciation by clicking on the audio button.
Practice to listen to news bulletins and some songs in English (pronunciation
of words). You can also learn new words and expressions this way. The more you
listen, the more you learn!
You should read out loud. Read the newspaper or a magazine out to yourself.
Hearing yourself read will help you spot your mistakes in better way.

in different sentences. Use the word until you have learnt it and keep using it
Try to watch movies. Watch movies in English and pay attention to new
vocabulary and pronunciation. Imitate the actors and have fun with it.

speak English and compare notes. Talk about things that you have learnt and
Please use a dictionary as much as you could. The dictionary has millions of
words to choose from, Look up different words and their synonyms and alternate
how and when you use them in sentences.
