Take note: you will NEVER be fluent in one language without having to identify almost everything that surround you.

While I was starting to learn English I had never failed to watch English movies and try to copycat the dialogues or even write it down in my notes. There are certain sentences which are quite difficult to make by yourself, but you could learn it from watching English films.
Read English Paragraphs or books daily – Aside from reading dictionaries to gain vocabularies, you need to read English books in a daily basis too. You don’t need to be particular what kind of books for as long as it is written in English – a magazine, a newspaper, science books, kids story books or whatever that something which has English word in it. Reading it daily helps you familiarized a lot of words and phrases which are commonly used in English.
Be With English Speaking Friends – You don’t really have to find a native English speaking friends; what I mean with “English speaking friends” are your common friends who have the same passion in learning English.

As a matter of fact, I have befriended my college instructors who became my best buddy in speaking English. I could never forget one of my instructors in college who was as well like me, loved to speak English he was Mr. Reynaldo Pines.
Be Confident – This advice is not about watching or reading English text, this is the soft skill that you need - to further learn and apply the English language in your daily life. Once you have all the prerequisites to learn English, you must have the self-confidence to use the language. Don’t be afraid or scared to speak English in-front of your friends, colleagues or classmates.
