If you want to improve your speaking skills:

Don’t be scared.

Pay attention to pronunciation from the start.

Be patient when pronouncing new words.

And if you’re not, record the correct pronunciation of that word or phrase

And listen to it another time, that way you’ll familiarise yourself with that word.

Don’t think too much when you’re speaking

Because you’ll get frustrated.

Increase your vocabulary and grammar when it’s lacking.

Make yourself read, that’s the only way you’ll improve your vocabulary.

Read aloud if you’re scared to speak in front of others.

Speak in front of a mirror to gain self-confidence.

Find a native speaker and practice with them.

Speak as much as you can.

Have classes with a native teacher.

Push yourself to only speak the language you’re learning.

Listen to music.

Speak without fear, so you aren’t shy.
