Hi, welcome to myLot harrisonlz! To improve your oral english, there's no shortcut. You need to keep trying to speak in english everytime you want to say something. You don't always have to speak them out loud, though. Just always try to make an english sentence in your mind. I find it beneficial to watch english tv series because you learn a lot also by hearing people conversing in english.

I am not sure if this system is available for English, but when I wanted to learn a second language I used a system called rosetta stone. It was amazing and made it so easy to learn, it made you think in the language so it was really good. It also had a part where you would speak and the software would give you an accuracy rating. It really was good - ood luck with your language learning!

My simple advice is for you to watch more and more American movies. Also, read a lot of English books. Have a small dictionary handy so that when you want to look up a word, it's easy. Listening is the best way to learn fast.Practice how the English words are pronounced and enunciated. Goodluck...

Try to get some English speaking films with Chinese subtitles. But try not to adopt the m#t**# f##k** style/attitude American lingo. You will offend decent people........

i think mainly just practice as much as possible - do you have any friends whose english is better than yours? because you could practice with them. listening or watching anything that involves native speakers (music, radio programs, films) can help as well.
