I agree with suggestions that you can improve your english online besides livemocha.com, there are some great sites like englishcafe.com, italki.com. And don`t be shy, sudan86. try to be brave to speak English, don`t be afraid of making mistakes, just try to be natural. Read a lot, practice and listen to English news,watch English movies etc.

I teach English online to students and there are so many ways for you to improve on your skills. I have been an online teacher for almost a year now and I understand the need to study English well. If you need any help then you can just tell me.

Yes this is where we Indians beat u Chinese. Our education system places lot of emphasis on english in India. We are taught english right from young age. Yes we too had our difficult times learning english because its not our mother tongue. I joined a spoken english class and started practising it daily since 20 yrs. Only practice can make one perfect. We need to get our organs of speach sinc to get a good speech structure. Make it a habit to read atleast one sheet of any english newspaper aloud, everyday. This will train our tongue, lips and ears.For more practice vizualise any situation and then try to describe it in english in ur mind. For instance u could look at a tree and then describe its every aspect, in english, in the present tense, in ur mind.. try this

I am also a Chinese guy, learning English is really a hard task for us. Apart from spending much time on it, I think, a good environment is very,very important. Since your job is focused on export products, you may have many chances to pratice your English. I think, for us, listening may be a big problem, so we should spend much time on training listening abilities. As long as we can understand others, we can express what we want to say. Any way, good luck to you, hope your English is getting better everyday.
