Also, there are people who are unable to speak even in group discussions, but running from it will never help but facing it might! Participating in GDs will always help such people. In initial chances you might end up saying nothing but you have to stand still and try to speak. No matter in what language and if you continue this practice one day you will be able to keep your point and will also learn the best way to present your point in front of others in the required way.

It will start with hesitation, pauses, breaks and might result in poor presentation, but facing people again and again will definitely increase your confidence and improve your skills as well.
· Make English your first priority
When you talk to people or you talk to animals, or to yourself, make English your first language. When you talk to yourself in mirrors, talk in English, when you even think something in your mind, make sure you do that too in English only. Create all your thoughts in English and one day you will make it for yourself!
