This best help in this regard can be available in BBC's learning English
section, where you can find 'words in the news', 'grammar challenge' and
even 'business English'. These are quite useful and are available both
audio/text. Pl check out at bbc.co.uk/learningenglish.

Dear Imran,

I agree with Geetha but would add a few things:  Firstly, listen to good

spoken English preferably on BBC or so and try to pronounce those words 
yourself so that your tongue will get used to the queer pronunciations. 
Secondly, read good literature (I do not mean Shakespeare and such) but
even 
good articles would do since it would help in increasing your vocabulary
and 
you would have more words to play with and of course, as Geetha said
speak 
as much as you know with those who know the language and ask them to
correct 
you whenever they find errors in your speech.  Hope this helps.

If it is any consolation, I have  had my education till class X in
Marathi 
medium with English as my third language.  However, now I love the
language 
and though not very flowery speaker, I have not had any difficulties to
be 
understood even by native speakers.  If you need help do not hesitate to

communicate with me off list.  Thank you.

(I am writing this on the list just so that other youngsters can also
follow 
this).
