I'm college student in China and I'm not very good at English. But I really want to make a change. The best way I think is to communicate with local speakers. Maybe you can help me to improve...

Hi Lisa. You can only learn so much from a classroom and from books. The best way is to talk with a native speaker and spend some time in the country. That is not so easy though, of course. I live in London and am happy to correspond with you and help you expand your English and am an English teacher here. Feel free to contact me if you need help or advise. :-)

Hi Lisa. I believe listening real English is very important too. There are online a lot of online platforms where you can find people talking in English. Usually I love to read in voice. I believe by reading we can improve our vocabulary. All the time we can discover new words, idioms, expressions so on. Writting is same time important. Depends what do you want to improve first. For myself very important is to pronounce very well English, to communicate and to understand others. Listening is my first point. Try to listen all the time when you have free time. Listen real english, tv, radio, podcasts. Then you can try to talk. Read in voice. That can help too, very well. Hope to find you somehow online to talk more about improving English. I really like to talk about that. In the future hope to became an English teacher. See you soon! Cata

I used to go to touristic people and met people came from every country. I knew that learning by doing systematically could improve your ability. You have to speak on your own and be confident with it. I always stood up in front of the mirror and keep practicing the word I have just memorized as often as possible, If I have gotten a chance, I always used the time with bravery I had to speak to him or her even if I met them on the bus or on the street.

It is weird that many people are not proud of their own languages but think English is the language they must learn and speak. Whereas it is probably the most widely spoken language in the world, it doesn't make it better than other languages in my opinion.

Hi Lisa. There are just three secret words which can help you very much to improve your English: practice, practice and of course practice. Now by internet you can find a lot of ways to practice English: talking, reading, listening, all the oportunities are opened for you. I was able to learn English in just 3 weeks because of the internet and people who really want to help, to improve their English. I am sure if you will listen a lot people talking even online your English will improve fast. Finaly the answer is: practice ;).

Do you know which is the world's most widely spoken language?its chinese.english comes only in third position.but english is treated as the global language.for business purpose and diplomatic talks mainly english is used.english emerged as the global language because of the british colonialism.china has never been under any colonial power.so you people won't know that.i salute chinese people for that.anyway you go ahead with your english learning programme.all the best.

You just need to 'duo du, duo ting, duo xie and duo jiang'. You can also buy a good English dictionary to help you.
