Start with small words. Begin to use this vocabulary in your daily life. Replace the native language words with their respective translated English words. Carry this list with you and refer to it until you have memorized the English words. When you are ready to expand your vocabulary, add tougher words and phrases in your list. Wait until you are comfortable with the tougher words. Once you memorize them as well, add more. Continue this cycle until you feel confident with your vocabulary!

Once you have reached this goal, you will be able to use slang and other informal expressions appropriately. Until then, turn your back on these kinds of expressions and continue with the simple, formal English.
