well for English listening comprehension you could try listening to some songs in English, watching movies or television programs in English, or reading an audio book in English if you are able to get one for speaking English, you could repeat the words when watching a program in English However, the best approach is speaking to a native English speaker. I am a native English speaker. I was born in the United States. It may be possible that I can assist you in improving your oral English.
