English is considered a very difficult language because it originated from a mixture of German languages, with Latin thrown in a few centuries later. Unfortunately it is also a language which changes constantly, because of the number of foreign language words which are adopted into it as well. Add to that the different alphabet *and* the different context -- syllabic characters compared to single-sound characters -- and you are working with something that is very challenging.
If you can afford to study overseas in one of the English-speaking countries, that would be the best way to learn (immersion). If you cannot leave your country, it might be possible to find some of your fellow Chinese friends who also want to learn English, and you could all practice it together in conversation.
Another possibility is to write email with some English-speakers, which will make you learn new words. One of the best options is to write email with someone else who knows Chinese as well (which dialect do you speak) so that they can help you with words you don't know.
Your written English has good grammar, so I am wondering if you may be ready for spoken English? I know that is the difficult part for many people from Asian countries (my experience is mainly China and Korea). In that case, you might be able to set up a microphone and use the Yahoo Messenger with Voice, or Skype which uses voice. By doing that, you can speak with someone who uses English and get practice without ever spending more money than is needed for the microphone. Source(s):
My experience with foreign students in graduate school, and with my students overseas. You should get a few e-mail friends in the USA, Canada, or England, so you can practice reading and writing English, at least. That should help out a lot. English is difficult because it is a culmination of many languages. see my answer to your earlier question. It would be great if you had more contact with the language. The best recipe is to go to an English-speaking country for some time and force yourself to speak. The language should come naturally then. I think you definately need to study abroad in an English speaking country. It's very difficult to learn a language if you aren't immersed in it. Try watching American television shows (or tapings or DVD's of) also. English is supposidly the hardest language to master, so don't worry about it being hard, it's just because you didn't grow up speaking it.
