How can I speak correct English?

I think the best way to improve speaking skills is just to speak. :) Doesn't matter if we make mistakes - we will improve over time. Often the biggest challenge is to overcome the fear of making mistakes. But I believe mistakes are essential to get better. :) Also, there's a technique called Speech shadowing which has helped me a lot to improve my speaking skills. It goes something like this: 1. Pick up some English audio / video material you really like; with transcript / subtitles preferably – this can be your favourite movie, sitcom or audiobook. 2. Listen to the material at least once to get to know the content 3. Now the fun part comes in. :P Listen to the material again and try to imitate actors / narrator. What do I mean by that? Repeat everything what is being said in the audio material – you can try to talk in the same time as the actor / narrator, or you can wait until he/she finishes the sentence and then repeat what he / she said. 4. Repeat :) Or take a look at http://sharedtalk.com where you can find friends to talk over Skype. Or find some foreigners in your city and make friends.
