I would like to become fluent in English in this year, and I know that the best way to become fluent is by practicing the language as much as possible, But the question is how to do that online and where? I'm looking for trusted websites which they are using correct English and american accent. Any Ideas from whom speaking English fluently as a second language?

Thanks for help.

Thanks a lot @Maryam , I really liked the sources you shared with me specially VOA. Your help is highly appreciated.

With my experience with learning English as a second language, I think it would be helpful to clarify the situation which you intend to use the language.

Is your goal to guide tourists in English or to discuss legal issues with it? Or, perhaps, you want to develop software in an international firm. Notice here that depending on your goal, the vocabulary and expression you need to learn will be very different, even if you are learning the same English language.

So, it could be more productive to read articles or to attend courses in English, which are aligned with your ultimate goal.

Yes, I think you're right, and currently I started to do that while at the same I'm working on improving my language in general. Thanks for your reply.

@Maryam Thank you for VOA link! It is very useful.

@M. Hawash I also found some courses on Coursera to be very useful. Currently I am very pleased with the University of California, Irvine. They have nice videos (I am visual type) and amusing quizzes. I have not tried other providers though, so cannot compare.
