Myloters from India, most of you are very fluent in English, many of you even work as online writers, so how do you reach it if English is not your native language? I read in a book about relationship between US and India that there some regions in India where people speak almost only English but one my friend told me that English is set as a "second official" language in India? Is it true?

I am not from India, I am an Asian i just found out your topic is interesting to respond. Well to share with you English language can be learn if you want to get fluent on it study it and communicate the language as you can in that way you can improved your English speaking skills. Read also with open mouth as it could help too.

Thank you, Jersey. I agree with you that it's very important to communicate actively but I think in terms of speaking it is easier than writing. That's my surprise how can they write so good.

@thommas.. we Indians are always fond of English buddy..Every Indian of every age tries to flaunt their English 'skills'..In that way, we've created several regional-hybrid languages like Hinglish (Hindi+english), tenglish(telugu+english) etc.,.LoL Despite the conservatism in certain sections of society which opposes the spread of foreign languages and culture, English found a way into our lives..One who is well versed in English was well respected in the past..this led to the frenzy and today, even a small school kid could amaze his father with his english..that is the change b/w 2 generations.. Because of this, Indians attract the US and other countries..We find ourselves mutually compatible..They want cheap and skilled labour..We want a better pay and life than that in India..and both get wat they want..The chinese couldn't do the same..But actually, it is good for them as chinese development is based on the fact that 9 out of 10 chinese intellectuals work for China where as in India, only 1 out of 10 works for India..But after recession, this trnd is reversing its course..

Thank you, kalyandheeraj, for the exhaustive explanation. (Sorry I didn't respond earlier - I just hadn't noticed your comment) Now it becomes much clearer for me. Hybrid languages - hear about such the first time, it's very interesting point.
