    In order to improve your English you can do the following things:
    Start reading good English magazines and news papers, and while reading underline the words for which you do not know the meaning, then refer to the dictionary and find out the meaning of the word.
    You should start watching English news channel, this will help you to know,how to modulate your voice while speaking.
    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.
    Read aloud in English for 15-20 minutes every day, this practice will help you to pronounce the words correctly.
