I want to encourage and teach English speaking to my 9-year old son to make him fluent in this language in few years. How to do it? My wife can't speak proper English. My own English is above average though and I am confident that with the help of a book, an app or any guide, I can work on it.

Any language is picked up if the baby is constantly exposed to the language. Since at this stage baby is mostly with the mother do encourage your wife to learn to speak in English in the meantime. She needs to know the simple words, commands etc. to speak to your child. You can continue to speak when you are at home.
