Don't set fluency targets - Never ever commit themistake of setting a "number of words spoken perminute" kind of targets. They are destructive asthey do not allow the mind to really workconstructively without pressure.
Be a natural - Let things happen naturally. As youread more, and convert the read word into spokenword, your speed will gradually pick up. Do not beartificial.
Read, read, read - As you read more, your confidence about issues / topics / subjects willgrow. You will start owning knowledge. You will develop an inner, natural strength. It is amatter of time that is starts showing on your face.
Write at least 1 essay per day - It is the ultimate test of what you are learning, and if you arelearning something at all. Pick a plain paper, think of a topic, and write an essay (300 wordsmax) on it. Do it every day. It will very productively force you to raise the level of the game.
Be measured while you speak - Do not try to outgun anyone in the group. Take a few secondsbefore you react (2 or 3 seconds, say). That will ensure that you do not over-react, instant-react, or wrong-react.
Talk to yourself - You will never be ashamed doing that. Keep doing it regularly. It will open upyour tongue.
Shout, at least once a day - Go to the rooftop literally, and shout aloud. Do that for someminutes. Speak something sensible if you can. It will train the mind not to be scared ofanything. Of course, if you do that elsewhere, people may beat you up :)
Love yourself for what you are - This is perhaps the most crucial step. If you hate yourself fornot being a fluent English speaker (as per whatever random benchmark you've adopted), yoursense of self-worth will be destroyed. Don't let that happen to you.
I have come across some really fast speakers who talk sense, and some who are idiots; somemeasured speakers who talk a lot of sense; and some slow speakers who are a pleasure tolisten to.
It all depends on your profession, your eye-contact and body language, and the choice of words+ depth of knowledge.
So relax, and start your personal journey of success! It will take time, so buckle up. Wish yougreat luck.
