I find what's difficult is....

daily talk~ just some small and commonly used sentences or expression we say a lot everyday...Chinese always comes up first in my head, and i think it's natural..

more practice needed~~~~:)

I have the same feeling! especially when foreigner talk to me, I always translate it to chinese in my brain and then speak with unfluently english. I don't want this, but it's my instinction.
It's so slow and bore!

I agree with you! I need more practice! But do you know, if you can not speak fluently english, the foreign colleagues don't want ofen to talk with you too! So the opportunity of practise english with them is rarely! and my progress is very slow!
