Use a timeout. Practice playing with a 60 second timeout as long as you can.
Typical settings on a civserver.freeciv.org game are: generator 2, 5-8 players
(but you rarely have more than 4 at the stage where things get interesting),
techlevel 0, huts 0, fogofwar 1, barbarians 2, onsetbarbs -2000, standard
80x50 map size. Generator 1 games are less common but more interesting.
Landmass is rarely changed.

Timeout and tactical planning (which the AI doesn't do at all;
see http://www.freeciv.org/tutorials/nouja/ which is 2 years old
but most of it still applies).
Paul Dean is right of course: you can't beat an experienced human
when it comes to learning this game.
