    Talking to people helps a lot. Especially educated people who will explain the words you don't understand (less educated people typically imagine that you are deaf and just yell the same word again, louder and sometimes faster).
    Watching TV, listening to the radio, watching movies, reading books, newspapers and magazines. Discussing in web forums.
    Books which were translated into English (rather than originally written in English) are usually easier to read because the translator will typically use a more standardized language than the writer.
    I think it may be very useful to watch DVD movies with the sound in English and subtitles in your own language (or another language you know well).

    Good luck,
    Leszek.

    If your TV set shows closed captioning (cc), originally developed for the deaf, it'll put the english text on screen for most english programs. You can catch more this way.

    Good idea. English subtitles for English-voiced movies are also available on some DVDs. That feature too is meant for the deaf.
