Practise your English as much as you can
Watch English TV shows and movies
In 2021, almost every working professional can spare a few minutes a week to watch TV. You have a plethora of options : streaming services, YouTube videos, the news, your favorite shows. However, many non-native speakers of English find that when they are tired at the end of a busy workday, they would rather not watch TV in English.
There is a lot of content out there in your native language. Use those shows when you really want to relax. When you want to watch an English TV show, turn on the subtitles for your language to make sure you understand the nuances correctly.
To really make progress with your English skills, you should pay attention to English language audio for at least 15 minutes every day.
Listen to English radio
There are plenty of interesting songs and talk shows out there. Listen while you are driving or commuting to work, when you need a change of pace during your workout or when you are cooking or cleaning around the house.
Practice your English with a friend
You probably know someone else who is trying to improve their spoken English. Ask him or her to speak English with you over the phone. During the flow of a normal conversation, take turns listening for errors. You can give each other positive feedback and help identify errors. This works even better if you are comfortable enlisting the help of a friend whose first language is English - they can help you with common idioms and informal usage.
