Learning English is not so hard as long you willing to put time practising it. With time, your English can be improved. I had a chinese friend, whose English is very poor. She had tried to go English classes to improve it but never succeed. At last, through daily practise speaking with fellow friends, then her English slowly improved. Hope you, too can succeed.

I agree with tudors. I took a French oral communication class in college for the same reasons. In that class, we focused on watching movies, listening to news, and discussing these in class with more vocabulary from the book. My suggestion for you would be to start with things that give you visual clues (like TV, movies, or online news). Seeing these things helps more than just translating the words on the radio. As for captions, what we did in my French class was watch the movies for the first time by ourselves with captions (either English or French). After that, we came to class three days a week and watched certain scenes without captions and discussed these scenes in detail. The captions at first really help you understand what is going on. After that, you can watch them again and learn more specific vocabulary.

Hi. I am Asian too - from the Philippines. I don't mean to brag but people often tell me that I speak (and write) English very well. You see, I watch a lot of western television shows. I have been doing that ever since I was young. Weekend cartoons, American sitcoms, and of course Sesame Street, which I highly recommend. No kidding. Of course you need to have a real interest in learning the language. I do hope this helps you and good luck. Happy learning! -Mike

well..u will learn English if u really persistent and agrressive to learn..don't give up with those visual things such read English books,watch English movie with translation of chinese language,listening English music or buy english magazine or English stuff that could help u and try also to motivate urself that u really can.take time to practice and if possible get an English tutor paid by a lower rate or go to a school and enrol English subject..if u want an immediate progress..
