Find particular classes in your area. Don't go for the cheapest option. Speak with a a native english/British/kiwi speaker. Make sure they are toefl certified or something similar

Use English as much you can.

Keep a diary in English. Keep a blog in English. Watch movies with English subtitles or without. Keep your thoughts in English. Make your whole living through English.

Studying English is totally BS. I studied for 13 years, and I still have no clue. That I said before was helped me more than studying.

I writing in this forum because I want to improve my English skills. I using free Grammarly for correcting my texts (still have so much misspelling).

But most important thing - speak English and don´t be afraid to make mistakes!!

Here's a huge mistake of yours, for a starter. I'm now learning Chinese. Chinese people are EVERYWHERE. Anytime I strike a conversation in English with one I'd go with a line or two in Chinese, "What time is it?" "Are you Pekinese?" or "Are you a student?" I'm awful at it and they either struggle to understand or laugh, but closer Chinese friends have said that my pronunciation has drastically improved. Practice makes perfect.

That apart, Lang8 is a good platform, I'd suggest you write one post there twice a week or so. Set yourself a time schedule (I study 30 minutes a day aside from my PhD) and make rotations practicing your listening, reading and writing skills.

And remember that language is a slow learning process that demands longtime efforts.

Easy! Get an African American friend. 90% of the time, the way they talk with women is good!
