Learn to retell favourite books and films, presenting them in detail or giving the gist. Watch the reaction of the audience if they are bored and asking questions is not the topic of conversation, so you can't pass on their impressions of the work. Think about why this happens: perhaps you are abusing personal pronouns, so that the interlocutors are no longer able to understand who these many "he", "she" and "they."
Get rid of unnecessary words, i.e. those which do not add anything to the meaning of the text and do not carry separate information. A typical example of the use of unnecessary words: "Not the month of may" (may is not may be the year, hour or minute), "to lift up", "back", "minute", etc.
Avoid tautology – the repetition of cognate or kindred meaning of words: "oil oil", "ask a question". For practice, analyze the speech of their interlocutors, politicians, anchormen and comedians. Consider what mistakes they make and how can I replace a failed word combinations. Then it would be easier to monitor their own speech and the right to build proposals.

Explanatory dictionary of the Russian language and dictionary of foreign words will help you expand your vocabulary. Pay attention to the accents in words.
Think about the appropriateness of the use of professional or youth slang. At work or in the company of friends you understand, but in formal speech or in conversation with people from other social groups, these expressions can be unsuccessful.
