Well oral English is not really a problem Finnliu.. I have Korean, Chinese, Japanese friends and they are not that really good in English. because in their country they don't use too much English! Actually, they just approach me if there is something that they don't understand because they said that I look approachable. Saying hi to them is a big factor actually to start a friendship. Why don't you try to talk to them, set aside your grammar first, as long as you can express what you are trying to say its fine. To to ask your seat mate or anyone that you think is approachable. And about your teachers, try to ask them after your class if you are shy. They will appreciate it.
