March 3, 2009 9:29am CST
Many teachers said communication with native English speakers is a good way to study English. However,in the most areas of china, students haven't this kind of situation, they can't find any foreigners to talk, they are even scaried to talk in English. Actually i am one of them. so how can we learn it well? it's a big problem for us.

hello, There is a treasure under our hands which is internet, my teachers used to tell me that reading is the best way to learn and improve English, it is not my native language either but i like to read a lot and i believe that it helped me to improve it. This is what i can suggest you to read read read. I also did listen to songs a lot and when i wanted to learn what they are meaning ( because it is pointless to listen a song with out knowing what are they saying ) i checked dictionaries. And never scared to talk with a foreigner , they will not blame you for any thing but you will give them a chance to correct you, this is how you are going to be able to learn it. No embarrassment!!! Have a great day!!!
