How to study English?
I've learned English for about 6 years, but I can't speak English well.
I want to speak English fluently. Then, what should I do?
Listening to English conversation? Writing many English essays to be corrected?
Give me some advices, please.
As they already said, the best you can do is to actually keep on using the language almost daily! :)
It will help immensely if you find someone you can write to, or talk to directly in English. It can even be a Japanese friend of yours, and you both agree on trying to talk in English to each other. (I did that myself with a German friend before and it helped so much!) But also of course listening to an English radio station, watching movies in the original sound, etc. can help.
If you have difficulties speaking, also a big issue a lot of people seem to have, is to try to directly translate their thoughts in their naive language to the language they're trying to speak. If you have issues finding a word you want to express in Japanese, but don't know it in English, simply try to explain it, instead of trying forcefully to find a translation for it. It will make conversations a lot smoother and easier :)
But if needed, you can also always write to us on fluentli!
Helly is partially correct. You need to be speaking and listening to English conversations to improve your skills more quickly. Almost every major city in the world (and some smaller ones) has a language meetup group of some sort. In my city there are groups for a variety of different languages. Check out meetup.com or couchsurfing.org for local language clubs and English speaking expat groups.
