- Learn Basic grammar
To learn English I suggest you learn basic grammar first as it is necessary for beginners such as to learn English tenses, parts of speeches, clauses, etc. While learning grammar, try to focus on basics and fluency.
Practice your grammar for a short period of time and later on go for reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
- Read, write, speak, listen
After learning basic grammar try to focus on reading and writing first and then try to speak with your friends and relatives. As told you earlier, Practice makes a man perfect, Practice speaking English as much as you can.
