Can any one suggest me ways to increase my english fluency??
I know all gramatical aspects but the problem is while speaking,I will get afraid and speak naively.This problem is especially while talking to teachers and girls

1. Speak slowly, be relaxed in the head and breathe rhythmically.

2. Read things out aloud to yourself, think in English, plan in English and approach in English.

3. Watch lotsa English TV, movies and listen to English songs. Stay away from Bollywood.

PS: Are you from the Hassan in Karnataka?

-Slow down rate of speech.
-Feel free with your accent. Never try too hard to match other's accent.
-Listen to English news daily. BBC WORLD news is one of them.
-If bored in watching news, get Opera browser, and use it's speech utility and learn/hear your favourite content on web.

All the best!

watch movies and read books and yeah as kiran said the accent dont fake 1 coz more often ul be concentrating on the accent which hampers speaking and add to tht the fact that any1 can notice wen some1 is faking an accent ;)

-BBC is a must.This is something which will teach you the right pronunciation.
-Speak slowly
-don't be too self concious.
-dont give a damn what other think about you.
-Read good books to enhance your vocabulary.This is very important.

other than all above if you want it to impress your frnds learn some slang(not the usual whazz up,dude,etc.)so it'll seem like your not putting in much effort and sound formal.

don't go for any accent coz this stays only up to us any foreigner can easily distinguish us no matter how good our accent is.fluency and knowledge matters not accent.eg. are spanish and latin ppl without an english accent but still they speak proper english.

My tips:-
-practice speaking tongue twisters (as many as possible)
-Don't be self conscious (as said by The_Devil_Himself)
-don't give a damn what people think about u (as said by The_Devil_Himself)

1. Treat english just as a language.. You shd just be able to communicate ur needs to others...
2. People who measure ur intelligence by how u speak english r foolish...
3. Follow wat the others said...

Couldn't have agreed any more!!

@adi007: In in day-to-day conversations with parents,friends etc.,whenever you say a sentence in Hindi or your native language,just repeat that sentence at the back of your mind in english.This way atleast you will know how to speak the language in different context.

though i agree that people who judge ur personality by ur fluency in english are very narrow-minded, the fact still remains that it is very important in today's world to be able to speak english fluently because it is considered more or less like a global language. i consider my english fairly gud and i credit that to just the three things mentioned below (in order of importance)

1. read, read and read some more - and the best part is u don't need to just read classics. read anything that interests u - comics like Tintin, Asterix and Obelix, or thrillers like Michael Crichton, Stephen King. hell, u could even read p0rn.
this also includes watching english movies

2. think in english - very mportant. try to converse with urself in english.

3. speak at ur home / with friends in english no matter how broken it may be. don't expect to start speaking fluently overnight. give urself some time and start seeing the difference.

just follow these and i'm sure ur fluency will improve. also always be confident of urself. it shows to others how confident u are of urself.

^^yeah, that has nothing to do with fluency in english. it is a law of nature - a man will make a fool of himself in front of girls and the magnitude of that is directly proportional to how much he likes the girl

I hope English(UK/GB) is still the "real" English.not the usa one.

my point:try to leave the local language accent while speaking English.yeah,this needs u to think also English :(
