I think watching movies is the best exercise to improve your English. I used to watch one or two movies everyday when I was in the foundation level of the university.

I don’t know what’s the right methode. But I think you should not be afraid of being wrong as long as then you fix your mistakes. Afterall mistakes make perfect. Even a native speaker also can’t be a master in english. So keep trying and never give up.

During my school days & even now a days, my father is always telling us to read English books, newspaper, magazines everyday to be fluent in speaking English. It really helps me a lot.

We should be religious in reading as if we are taking vitamins for ourselves. i mean, to spend reading at least 4 hours a day would be helpful, but if we are not busy more than that hour would be better.

After reading anything, i often share what i've read to my sisters or friends because sharing ideas with others could develop our knowledge in communicating.

Writing what we have done during the day or our future plans could be helpful too because we create ideas or insights. 

If we have knowledge about anything it is easier for us to express in English. We gain that (knowledge)  through reading, watching television, & listening to knowledgeable people.
