    Default fluency

    When there is a stuff in media , for example news,one can listen to it as in BBC or CNN or read it in newspapers (or even memorizing it). I wonder which of these ways is more effective to focus on in improving ones fluency ?!

    Why not do both? The more language you expose yourself to the better.

    Your emphasis is fluency.
    So I think speaking practise is the most importance.
    In China,there is a famous training,called "crazy English",it encourages people to repeat one sentence loudly and crazily until you can repeat fluently and clearly. it does work!
