"1. My first suggestion is to read aloud as much as possible in English ALOUD. A standard daily English Newspaper and the Readers Digest have very good reading material. If possible record your voice and listen to it to know the areas the sounds, words and alphabets that give you trouble and on which you need to work. If possible read aloud to a friend who can give you his/ her feedback based on which you can work on improving your pronunciation as well as articulation.

2. The mother tongue influence is a problem for many considering that very few of us are native English speakers. To reduce that, make more English speaking friends and make a determined effort to speak only in English, even if you keep forgetting words, or tend to stammer or your friends tend to laugh at you. This will require a lot of will power but believe me you will soon improve. If someone corrects your pronunciation dont take offense, instead be grateful that he/ she is helping you correct yourself.

3. I ...more

Not only by reading, but also you need to understand what you read and try communication something or the other with others, so that you find some improvement over a period of time...!

Definitely ........ but go for all three ..reading writing and speaking .........One option you can try is to talk into a tape recorder. Once you complete your thought, just transcribe it.

This way you can talk yourself in a good flow and you writing will also be powerful because when you write in a flow you have rhythm

Awareness of your own interaction with other people is the first step in improving your communication skills.

Learn to identify which types of situations make you uncomfortable and then modify your behavior to achieve positive results is a critical step in improving your communication skills.

You can learn to become aware of behaviors in other people that prompt you to respond in negative ways and modify your own behavior to turn the situation into a positive experience.
