While it will take time to learn any language, regular practice will show steady results in a short time. Often students know more than they think they do, but just need help pulling the various bits of information together. Look for a teacher or study partner here on italki who can help you focus what you already know. Practice speaking, even if it is just to your plant! Watch LOTS of English television and movies. Read English magazines and newspapers. Little by little you will notice an improvement. The most difficult part is getting started - it gets easier as you go along!
