I've tested my first GMAT, And I got guant 84% and verbal 16% -> I took a month to study.
I know that I am not a naitive english speaker. but verbal is too low.
Could you give me any advice to increase my verbal to 80% or more?

Look through the entire verbal section and read and work any verbal question you can possibly find on this forum. Going from 16% to 80% is going to require a lot of work and dedication. Ask Walker. He is a non-native english speaker and he went from virtually no english to a 750 GMAT score in about 10 months. I'm not sure how many hours daily he worked on his English though.

I was in your shoes year ago... thousand problems, hundreds concepts, a lot of pieces of knowledge, active participation (reading and posting) in forum and HARD work, really HARD everyday work. Sometimes I didn't see any improvements for more than a month. I've finished with V40 (89%) starting from almost 0 as a non-native English speaker. You could read my debrief and spend some time to read gmatclubers' posts here: 8

Good luck!
