Be an active Listener: Being a good communicator not only requires good communication skills but also active listening.

Take Part in Group Discussions: As it is a well-known fact that practical knowledge of anything is more beneficial, you can take a topic and practice group discussions with your friends, family.

Be Pertinacious: You should be persistent towards improving your communication skills. You should not stop after a few days as improving communication skills is a slow process. You will have to be determined in following all the steps like reading, group discussions for improving your skills.
