    What application of speech do you mean?  Grammar, pronunciation or articulation? 
    Here is a quick link on improving English:

    If you mean grammar: http://www.amazon.com/English-Grammar-D … 0470546646

    If you mean pronunciation: http://www.amazon.com/Improve-Your-Amer … 0071428097

    If you mean being well-spoken, articulate, effectively communicating your thoughts and ideas: http://www.amazon.com/Getting-Ahead-Hom … 0521407060

    I hope this helps. Kudos for your effort.

    Warm regards~

    Generally, the best way to improve speech is to stop using any slang words and phrases, and to think about how each word is formed, avoid dropping Hs, except in cases where it is valid, as in hotel, it can be pronounced either way.  Don't use the glottal stop.  These few things will improve your speech.  Do not try to imitate BBC English, or Hollywood English, your accent will be fine.
