    There is no magic science that can improve your speakiing skills. All you need to follow some steps given below

    1.Don’t ever get afraid of English
    Firstly you need to get over the fear that you cannot speak in English. It is only due to lack of confidence. But it is really the game of practicing only. And rest, have faith in you because no one is born winner everyone have to fight to win.
    2. Start from the base
    If English is not your mother language then you firstly need to understand its basics. So learn all the tenses of English and try to make sentence on the basis of these tenses. With this you will get complete idea that in time which type of sentences should I use. Let’s consider an example.
    I go to the market. (Present Tense-Current time)
    I went to the market. (Past Tense-Passed time)
    I will go to the market. (Future Tense-Upcoming time)
    3. Read English magazine, comics and Newspapers
    Read newspaper but oh no Its really seems boring, so an English magazine or comic whatever you like, start learning them. I recommend all of these because in newspapers there are about 150 words which are repeated again and again and once you have good command on those words you will be able to understand the meaning of complete article written in English.
    4. Watch movies with English subtitles
    When I was a student there were many teachers who told me that watch English movies and I also tried to watch English movies but I just used to get bored from these movies. The main reason was that I never understood what they talk in English. Then one day, one of my teacher told me that watch movies but in your language and with English subtitles. This will help you a lot in learning English. I did the same and it really helped me a lot so you can also try this if you are not able to understand English movies.

    5. Speak in front of mirror
    Speaking English in front of mirror seems idiotic but ask all of those who did this and really improved their English skills. As I think this is the first time when anyone starts speaking English. It gives you confidence that yes if you can speak in front of you then you can speak in front of all. And after that start speaking in English in front of others which give you real experience.
    6. Join English speaking classes if you don’t have good environment at home
    Yes it is a very critical step because as a writer I never say that join an English classes. But if you do not have environment in which you can talk in English then go to English classes. The reason being for it is simple because you should keep in touch of those who speak in English and at least English coaching center is the same place.

    All the Very Best

    Hi..I'll try to give suggestion to you about how to improve your speaking skill. i live among people who do not speak English same with you. and my speaking skill is not good enough. but, I'll try to help you in improving your speaking. i wanna ask you first, are you a student? if you're a student, it will be easy to improve your speaking. firstly, you can practice it when you speak with your friend everyday. secondly, you can record yourself when you speak. Though we hear ourselves all the time, we really don't know quite what we sound like. So record yourself! What are the weak and strong points you hear in your speech? And then you can concentrate on what you need to work on.
    have a nice try

    Talking Re: how to improve my speaking skills

    Well, I once knew about how to improve speaking skill from A.J Hoge, and I practice it.
    He said that we can learn speaking through listening.
    How could it be?
    First, try to listen podcast or mini-story that in the end of it there will be questions. Then, after listening, try to answer the questions by speaking.
    Actually, we have same case. I love speaking English but I cannot practice it with Native English. In other hands, I practice what A.J Hoge Suggested, then day by day I can improve not only speaking skill, but listening skill also.
    If you are interested in A.J Hoge's suggestion or course, please visit http://effortlessenglishclub.com/
    Hopefully, it can help you

    Re: how to improve my speaking skills

    Make sure to improve your pronunciation. If you pronounce a word correctly, it will be helpful for your listening skill. And when you can understand what people say, you can confidently raise your voice and communicate.
    Be confident, that's the key!

    Re: how to improve my speaking skills

    Imagine that you are at the stage performing. Think of an interesting movie you watched recently and try to tell about it in English. Imagine that you need to tell people about the movie that they have not seen yet and you want them to watch it because it is very interesting to you. Speak aloud and try to listen to your voice. It might be strange at first but then you will get in to it.
    If you notice that you are making many mistakes while speaking, analyse them and try to say correctly next time. It is important do not be shy that your English is far from being perfect. Analysing and persistent practice will do a good job for you.

    Re: how to improve my speaking skills

    Watching English (or American) films/TV series will help a lot because you'll have the chance to learn phrases and expressions used in everyday life that usually cannot be found in textbooks. I think it's the easiest way to improve both listening and speaking skills since you'll also have fun by doing it and you won't feel like studying or doing a chore.

    Re: how to improve my speaking skills

    It's recommended to speak slower.

    As for being able to speak fluent English, ideally it would be good to watch a lot of American films and TV shows so that you can get used to speaking it off the cuff.

    But, in a formal, public speaking context, it is best to study your material beforehand, learn it inside out - so that the way you express it for your audience will be spontaneous. And then, remember to speak really slowly so that you can avoid stuttering and you can deliver it in a very poised and presentable manner.
