1. Exposure: if you find that your English has reached a certain point and is not getting any better, you may need to expose yourself more to the language. This is the biggest key to learning a language. Learning from books while having their place will only bring you so far because as you'll soon find out most people don't speak like the Queen. Grammatical rules are important but they should be just considered as the back bone of a language; your foundation and nothing more. Never has it been easier to expose yourself to English for example by using Youtube or buying some books. Expose yourself as much as possible even if it is only for 10 minutes a day.
2. Practice: Practice makes perfect and learning English is no exception. But practice smart. Don't only focus on the aspects you like or don't like. Go for a more rounded approach as language learning is a combination of four skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking). In other words, don't only practice reading if you struggle (and don't like) speaking.
3. Feedback: You're going to make mistakes in English. Everybody does but the important thing is to learn from your mistakes and to not keep making them. Use your previous mistakes as a spring board for better English. This is where feedback comes in. Look for feedback, be it from people you talk to or from a teacher. Use their corrections to pinpoint your weaker points and then practice to stop making them forever. Just a point to remember, not everything everybody say to you will be correct or even accurate, so accept feedback as long as it is constructive and not negative just for the sake of being negative.
To sum up, language learning is a combination of four skills so you need to practice all four skills together. You need to be exposed to English as often as possible, practice regularly and get constructive feedback when you can.
