You can improve your spoken English in some of these ways:

Read educative and informative articles.

Always take notice of some new words and find the meaning in the dictionary.

Make sure you always have a handy Dictionary

I hope with all these grammatical errors and corrections you have been able to learn something.

You can ask questions where you don’t clearly understand in the comments box below.

Stop asking people ‘how was their night’, many people this days find it offending and it’s also no correct. In other part of the world, if you ask some people “How was your night”, They feel sad especially if something bad happened to them within the Night hours.

The right thing to say is “Hope you slept well”.

Thanks.
