Right now, I'm pretty focused on enhancing my communication skills in English. I've been underestimating for a long and now, at this point in my career, have the ability to express good and clear insights is a MUST.

That's great! Are you using any resources to help you? By communication skills, do you mean in general (reading, writing, speaking) or are you focusing on one at a time?

Currently, I trying to get better in each one, but specifically in speaking. The method that I'm using is turning my whole environment in English, any content I consume or any device I use must be in English. Also, I have a conversation group with my coworkers. Have you any recommendations? I'd appreciate any suggestions. :D

I don't know if this is true in all Slack communities, but some Slack communities pair people up for coffee chats and stuff—that may be an option. :) I've also heard Duolingo is a good place to get the opportunity to practice but I haven't experienced this myself. Something that would work would be recording short videos/screencasts/podcasts, or starting a Twitch channel and going live coding or gaming and talking to people that way!
