Here I am giving you some tips to improve English and communication skills

- Observe the mouth movements of those who speak English well and try to imitate them.
-Until you learn the correct intonation and rhythm of English, slow your speech down.
-If you speak too quickly, and with the wrong intonation and rhythm, native speakers will have a hard time understanding you.
-Listen to the 'music' of English.
-Try and familiarise yourself with the phonetic symbols of your dictionary.
-Look up the correct pronunciation of words that are hard for you to say.
- Make a list of frequently used words that you find difficult to pronounce and ask someone who speaks the language well to pronounce them for you.
-Record these words, listen to them and practice saying them. Listen and read at the same time.
-Record yourself reading some sections of the book.
-Compare the sound of your English with that of the person reading the book on the tape.
-Pronounce the ending of each word.
- Read aloud in English for 15-20 minutes every day.
-Record your own voice and listen for pronunciation mistakes.
-You can change the way you speak but it won't happen overnight so have patience

Books to help you improve your English
Essential English Grammar by Murphy (Cambridge)
Spoken English by R K Bansal and J B Harrison
