HOW CAN A PIECE OF "WOOD" HELP YOU SPEAK ENGLISH?
The answer is that it can't help you much but if you can pronounce the word "wood" then that is VERY useful because LOTS of Spanish people find this sound very difficult.
In my first year here in Spain I tried to teach one of my students how to say "wood" but it became very obvious that it was going to be impossible for him.
The reason it is so difficult is because you do not have the "w" sound in Spanish and therefore it is very difficult to learn at a later stage. In fact, it is very famous that you can only get the pronunciation of a language correct if you start learning the language at an early age.
Hope that helps!
