To improve the communication the most things required is English environment. But it happens in very rare cases so it will be better if you will do more work in English. Try to listen songs in English, read newspaper, and speak in English.

To improve english, the first thing needed is the will to learn the language.

Language can only be learnt with passion and practice.

Never hesitate to communicate in English, even if youthink you are wrong!
No one, not even an American, came to this world with prior knowledge of English.

Always refine your vocabulary by consulting the dictionary for any new word that you encounter.

Try to read books and journals in the language daily.

With daily practice and conversation, you will be fluent in the language.

Best of Luck.

The best way to do that is when you are speaking english , record your voice and then listen it carefully to find out the errors and mistakes you have done.
This way you can improve not only the grammar part but also you will come to know exactly what are the areas you need improvements. Reading newspapers sometime be boring..I would rather suggest you to watch lot of english movies , in that way you will improve your vocabulary and at the same time you will have fun ;).

hello, i suggest you buy Wren and Martin's English Grammar book for basic punctuation and English grammar..this is the best book and anyone can understand it from nursery level to graduation level....if you build up your grammar, speaking in English becomes easy...the rest are common suggestions given in the comments like viewing eng news channels and reading good books... also decide whether you want to follow British english or American english and then start your practice... because there is quite a difference in these two styles of English....

here is an interesting article which tells more about "communication skills" :

There are some formula for improving communication Skills

Observe the mouth movements of those who speak English well and try to imitate them.
Until you learn the correct intonation and rhythm of English, slow your speech down.
Listen to the 'music' of English.
Use the dictionary.
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.
Pronounce the ending of each word.

Hey buddy you can improve your English skills by reading English newspaper. First of all you have to build confidence in yourself that you can read and write English very well. You should listen to English music and English news channels to enhance your skills. Moreover you should watch English Movies as it will enhance your listening skills. And you should try to convey in English with other people.

Hello Friend,

English is very important to your chance of getting a job after B.Tech because clearly if you can't speak English properly then all your technical knowledge will be a waste as you won't be able to express the vast knowledge that you have gained in your B.Tech properly.


There are few steps that can help you speak fluently in English:

1. You should listen to good speakers. The way they speak, the pauses in their speech that they make. You can also try to emulate them to learn from them
2. Read lots of good books and also newspapers and English magazines
3. Speak with your friends in English and tell them to correct you whenever you are wrong.
5. Follow good grammar books like Wren and Martin.
6. Learn a news words so as to enhance your vocabulary.
7. Never get discouraged. Always keep trying.

Best wishes..

Hello,
This is quite a common question that you have asked. Let me give you the answer in a point format.
1) Please hire some English instructor, who will make you learn the correct things to communicate in English in less amount of time. You can advertise for such teachers in www.quikr.com.
2) Please buy only English daily newspapers and English magazines to learn difficult English terms and their usage. You can buy Times of India or India Today in this regard.
3) You can keep an English dictionary always by your side, to check up the difficult words and their meanings.
4)Practice with your friends and family and teacher speaking in English, so that you can remove any mistakes that you make frequently.
Try it and see the results.

Hi ,
You can improve your communication skills by watching a lot of Hollywood movies, and English TV series. Initially start of with subtitles and later on try watching them without the subtitiles. After a few tries you will actually get a hold on how a 'speech delivery' works.
Once you get a hold of it, try to join an IELTS or TOEFL coaching class. A dual advantage is what you get from this. Not only you can omprove your English vocabulary and speaking capability, but also you can write these exams and in future if you want to shift abroad, this would surely help.

Smile Re: How can I improve my communication skills in English?

i. Observe the mouth movements of those who speak English well and try to imitate them.

When you are watching television, observe the mouth movements of the speakers. Repeat what they are saying, while imitating the intonation and rhythm of their speech.

ii. Until you learn the correct intonation and rhythm of English, slow your speech down.

If you speak too quickly, and with the wrong intonation and rhythm, native speakers will have a hard time understanding you.

Don't worry about your listener getting impatient with your slow speech -- it is more important that everything you say be understood.

iii. Listen to the 'music' of English.

Do not use the 'music' of your native language when you speak English. Each language has its own way of 'singing'.

iv. Use the dictionary.

Try and familiarize yourself with the phonetic symbols of your dictionary. Look up the correct pronunciation of words that are hard for you to say.

v. 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.

Record these words, listen to them and practice saying them. Listen and read at the same time.

vi. Buy books on tape.

Record yourself reading some sections of the book. Compare the sound of your English with that of the person reading the book on the tape.

vii. Pronounce the ending of each word.

Pay special attention to 'S' and 'ED' endings. This will help you strengthen the mouth muscles that you use when you speak English.

viii. Read aloud in English for 15-20 minutes every day.

Research has shown it takes about three months of daily practice to develop strong mouth muscles for speaking a new language.

ix. Record your own voice and listen for pronunciation mistakes.

Many people hate to hear the sound of their voice and avoid listening to themselves speak. However, this is a very important exercise because doing it will help you become conscious of the mistakes you are making.

x. Be patient.

You can change the way you speak but it won't happen overnight. People often expect instant results and give up too soon. You can change the way you sound if you are willing to put some effort into it.

Quick tips

Various versions of the English language exist. Begin by identifying the category you fall into and start by improving the clarity of your speech.

~ Focus on removing the mother tongue influence and the 'Indian-isms' that creep into your English conversations.

~ Watch the English news on television channels like Star World, CNN, BBC and English movies on Star Movies and HBO.

~ Listen to and sing English songs. We'd recommend West life, Robbie Williams [ Images ], Abba, Skeeter Davis and Connie Francis among others.
