1.Read interesting posts ..check the meaning of what does not make sense. 2. Watch english programs or movies. 3. The most important thing is to "THINK IN ENGLISH " for example when you are thinking something and you usually think in your own language ...instead of that think in english and soon the language would become very natural to you.

hello wangxiaozhi. I think we have similar worried feeling, but mine is in Chinese language. ^^ for English, don't worry about it. there are a lot of resource you can access on internet. back then I was poor in English, even in written one, but I love to communicate with online community and believe me, as you keep interact with international internet users, your English will improve as you keep writing to them. international forums will also be helpful, because you can find many english posts and that's how we would learn the grammar, the vocabularies, and the proper word or sentence usage. as your written English improves, you will get confidence in reading and speaking, and later communicating with the native speakers or international speakers. for a start maybe you can say hello to the foreign students in your school, you can introduce yourself to them, make friends with them, and later tell them that you are interested in learning English (or even any of their native language), and perhaps you can also offer them a help if they are interested in learning Chinese / improving their Chinese language ability. I think most people will be glad to exchange language. that's what I know so far. back then I knew a Korean girl who learned Chinese too. and she had ever stayed in Indonesia (my country) for several years. I was glad in helping her explaining some Indonesian words she didn't understand, and later she also gave me tips about how to learn Korean better. hope this benefits for you.

You're welcome ^^ Some foreign friends? I think myLot have a lot of English speakers (both native and non native), perhaps you can start by saying hello to the other members when you post any response to their discussions in myLot. Oh yeah, I have some friends here who are from many parts of the world. Perhaps you want to check them out at my profile page to start find their discussions. They are from various places and ages, as far as I know, two of them are from your country too. ^^

You are lucky that study in a school with lots of foreign students.now i also learning english.i have to pass examnations to get the english grade certificate as CET4 or CET6.I learn english from junior middle school.i really want to learn it good.but my memory is not very good.so i usually forget what i had remembered.but i still go on.The best way to learn english quickly and learn to speak more fluently is to say more.environment is the important factor of learning english.you have good environment,you can use it.from time to time you will be sucessful.Believe yourself.
