How to Improve English Language Learning for Free

I feel your pain, as this can be challenging. Here are a few ideas that have helped many people.

Practice, Practice, Practice

Turn on the radio or TV and listen to a sentence from the speaker. Then repeat the sentence. Or maybe you can have an audio book CD and listen to a couple sentences and hit pause. Repeat out loud a couple times. There is also online audio. Doing this for about 20 minutes every day will help increase your English speaking ability.

If you know how to read English, read books out loud. I heard of one guy who came to the US and wanted to improve his English speaking. Every night he would read aloud from a book. This not only improved his English reading skills but also helped improve the clarity of what he was saying.

If you are ever unsure of how to say a word, just go to http://www.dictionary.com and listen to the word.

Practice tongue twisters from this  ESL website:

Take 30 minutes a day to practice this and you  will see an increase in your language skills.
