Be clear about why you want to learn English. You need English to serving his profession or to help you apply for jobs, or to speak with people who speak English, or to help you study?
Be clear about you want your English to a good extent. You want how much good English skills, listening, reading and writing?
Imagine and have very specific concept of yourself when you have achieved the level of English proficiency in that you want. Will you see and hear giva you will feel like?
If possible, enroll on a language course. If you can not, that then put yourself in situations where you need to use English ...
Look for opportunities to learn and use English. Speak English whenever possible. Or listen to the radio and CD in English, read and write in English. If you find opportunities, implement certain you'll find.
Write down new words and phrases in a notebook. Always carry a book in you and so you could wind the watch window whenever you have a little spare time.
Exercise, practice, and exercise. There's an expression in English. If you do not want to lose use it. This proverb is very true when applied to learning foreign languages.
Or search a person who can help you learn English, may be your colleagues. Find someone you can learn English also. Speak English with that person or those you can send messages to each other in English.
Learn a little one and often. Make a habit to learn English just 10 minutes a day only. This is much better than learning only once a week for longer periods.
The last point
When the beginning of a learning, ask yourself: "What I want to learn today?" At the end of class, ask yourself: "What have I learned today?"
There's a story about a teacher who told students that I know, You know you're making progress in English when you speak in English, think in English, and dream in English .
One day a student came into class very excited and told him: Teacher, last night I dream in English. Teachers say: It's great. How you dream about? Students who replies: I do not know, sir, for a no English.
