I know this is going to sound funny, but if practicing English with a native speaker is not an option for you, I would try watching some English videos or television. A friend of mine who moved to the US and had to learn English quickly took to watching children shows to help her english. They go nice and slow and even help with grammer rules. If you want some more advanced than that, she also said that she watched a lot of sitcoms and movies so that they could get a better ear for everyday talk and slang. By the time I met her, her English was really exellent.

If you have lots of time, watch the movie with subtitles the first time, and then without the subtitles the second time. Or conversely, with chinese subtitles, then english subtitles. I've seen people learn using both methods while watching movies.

first study the english alphabet. if youre already familiar with it, try reading english book aloud, in this case, youll get used to such. then try watching english movies. i wanted to learn korean and watching korean movies helped me though

i think practice is the good answer. by practicing gradually you'll improve your speaking, maybe through chatting, talking with friends, and even children.you need someone that would always be with you that is speaking english so you can practice it everytime

Hi there. Look your best option is too apply for extra tutoring, since you have exams... You can also go into chat with other english speaking people... Good luck with the language...
