Harsha I think the best way to communicate well is to read more, talk more, interact more and listen more. Read anything on earth, whatever one come across, right from books to comic strips. Talk to friends, peers family and learned people. Listen to news channels, BBC, discovery, National Geographic - all helps.] And you friends should encourage him to talk out his heart. The more he talks the more he gets better. Be it wrong English but that doesn't matter, we all do.

tell your friend that more than talking in front of the mirror he must sit and listen to people conversing in fluent english, and he must observe the words they use and their pronouncation and their flow of speech, also i would advice readingnewspapers and watching english news.
