    For native speakers, you can practice your language skills by reading the newspaper or a magazine of the subject that most interests you. This helps you develop new vocabulary words and engages you to practice. Watching TV does help, but be careful what you watch because of course there are certain things that are not correctly said. My best suggestion for practicing you English during your commute home, school, or work, why not try with your IPOD? You can download discussions or debates through Podcast, This helps build your listening comprehension. Personally having a good listen comprehension is one of the bases of improving. What else, oh Why not practice with other native English speakers? This can help you see the diversity of the language and how it evolved from country to country. Hope it helps!!

    If you want to speak more eloquently you can do several things. Reading broadly will definitely expose you to new words, but learning new words is not enough. You must incorporate what you have learned into your daily speech. Watching tv is also a very useful way to enhance your language skills because as you watch you are hearing native speaker's speech patterns and the more you hear them the more likely you are to adopt them as your own. Best of luck..

    Try reading out aloud. And even re-read the same paragraph a few times. It helps!
