    There's no simple answer- learning a langauge takes a long time and a lot of preactice. Be patient and use your English as much as possible.

    hi

    the most useful advise to learn speaking english is to learn how to thing in english!! i guess it's the most difficult step,,
    cause even if your vocabulary is very reach , u have to teach yourself to thing in english, i don't know suppose that you are with some friends who don't speak english, and one of them say something, try to translate it to english,
    this is what i did for a long time and i'm ok now!
    hope this will be helpfull for you

    Get a good monolingual dictionary and learn as many word combinations as you can.

    Thank you very much for this information . I'll look that site and then say my impression.
    If I have made mistakes, please, you correct me! I mean on all people, who will read this...Yes, this is small problem in English - don't exist difference between you in singular and you in plural! How do you (again...in plural) solve this problem?
    I haven't said that I'm delighted with this site and with people - all are so kind...

    It's funny you mention the difference between the singular and plural "you." In the American South, they show the distinction by saying "y'all" (you all) when using the plural you. It's a handy device, but unfortunately not one that's used in "proper" English. But some students use it as a mental clue - when constructing a sentence, try inserting both you and y'all - one singular, the second plural - and see which fits the best.
