the way how i improved my english was forcing myself to speak to others. one of the most effective ways to learn english is by having conversations with others. it can be a bit embarrassing when you make a mistake but it is worth it x
also try watching youtubers that speak English and watch movies, they help too xxx

hey i'm an immigrant and have english as a second language - i would personally say that watching english tv or youtubers helps a ton and you get used to different accents and the slang (for example someone from sheffield will have a different accent compared to someone from bristol, etc). reading books and talking to friends who are native speakers also helps as usually they will want to help up improve. however, i learned english back when i was 8 and now i'm 16 so it might be more difficult depending on age etc

car shows with humour : grand tour, the old top gears (when clarkson, may and hammond were still presenters), our man in japan, gordon, gino and fred's road trip

reality tv: love island (this is very popular in the uk), the only way is essex, made in chelsea, first dates, married at first sight uk (this is just coming out though), educating essex or educating greater manchester, the circle, teen mom uk - these tv shows help with knowing and understanding different accents more and understanding british culture and slang way more

Some pointers-
Speak slowly. Don't try to speak everything in 10 seconds. If you take your time and go slow, you will have enough time to think new words.
Listen to Ted Talks and other conversations. New words and interesting ways of communicating ideas can be found/learned by listening to others speak.
Don't be afraid. Your teacher will not kill you, or worse expel you from school. They are a human being too. If you ask for their help, I am sure they'll help you improve.
Analyze yourself. Stand in front of a mirror or record your voice and see where you have problems.
Speak more. The more you speak, the better you'll get over \time. I am not a native speaker myself but over time, communicating in English with teachers and peers has improved me a lot.

There are sitcoms on Youtube and if you are a movie fan you can watch it on netflix or any other site.
