I am in the process of learning 'rapid French', trying to get my speed up so I can keep pace with the locals when I move there next year.
Someone pointed me towards 'earworm' CD's, which I now play pretty much continuously in the car and at home.
It has a background beat (rarely intrusive) which in a strange way helps me learn the phrase as if it was part of a song....over and over again, spoken by a male (english) and female (french) couple who are simply bouncing the phrase back and forth, dissecting it in the process.

So far it's working very well. Maybe you can google it and find out if they do a 'rapid english' course based on your mother tongue. They also do audio downloads, but I just happen to be from the CD generation.

Good luck.

@Robert Clinton,
Robert Clinton, you are either a bot or you think that you know more than you actually do, regarding the English language.

Your written English is poor, which leads me to believe that English is not your first language.

Please be careful about how you advise someone regarding spoken and written English, as already this morning, on another thread, you have got something completely wrong.

You need to think in english. If you keep on thinking in your vernacular and try to translate it into englisg then you can never improve your spoken English.

Visit the BBC website and order yourself some recorded or educational material. There's a lot available.
Or just listen to some of the output online or on the airwaves.
Programmes like "From Our Own Correspondent, "The Moral Maze", or even "The Archers" for everyday speech.

This sort of thing can help; so can watching TV and films in the target language, but the only way to make bigger steps in my opinion is to live there (it's called 'immersion') for at least 6 months to 1 year. One issue problem I have found in getting to the chatting stage is that the locals, especially the younger ones, all want to try out their English on me. I think you will find that living there and making a deliberate effort trying to conduct as much as possible of your daily life in French will do a lot. Makes shopping fun too.

I would think that letting English native speakers know about your desire to improve would be helpful. Many are reluctant to correct the speech of others out of fear of offending them. Make it clear that you need their help, and are not offended when corrected. After all, how would you otherwise know what needs work?

Best wishes in your endeavor. Your written English is beautiful, btw.
