You could maybe try with eating English food.

 

You should always use fork&knife, while you're 'practicing'.

You've got to practice as often as possible.  All the time is best.

Good luck.

find a friend to practice with - even another Chinese person can practice with you.

NOTE: shouting 'hellooooooo' at a foreigner does not make them a friend to practice english with.

 

there is no short-cut to learning a language: watching movies will help listening

Read, read out loud, find the audio book for the book that you are reading.

It's the fastest way to learn vocabulary and contemporary grammar (if the book is fairly recent).

When you build your vocabulary, your confidence will increase and make it less awkward (which is itself an awkward word) if you want to approach a foreigner to talk to.

TCM says eating the soup made from vocal cords of the Parrot will make one speak all languages. For extra effect add dried Tiger Penis with a dash of Rhinocerous Horn.

*if that doesn't work u could try Fire-Cupping ~

It will take you less time to master it if you live in China.

I think practising is the most important things to learn a language. So you should find a foreigner to speak with in English. I used FB to chat with foreigners until  I knew olla. I found many foreigners there. There is also a telephone function for free, You can talk with foreigners in olla. It can help with your English learning and listening. I hope that my answer can help you out...

If you are what you eat, maybe you can try to eat some English speaking persons.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
