At the very first, learning English is my interest.
Shirleyice, as long you have interest in learning English, you will be fine. Give yourself time
to learn this language and make sure you are interested in all elements of English equally:
such as grammar, vocabulary, writting, speaking, and reading. This is a lot to learn, and it
is not possible for an ESL(Englsh Second Language) person to learn it in one night or
one year. The more you practice all of the above mentioned elements, the better you will
be; and when you don't understand something, get help immediately.
Some years later, i found i have to depend on English for living. So the situation is not
so positive. i have to master english as well as possible. But i do not know how to improve it.
This is a very hard question to answer precisely because I don't know what resources you have
to help you improve. However, judging from what you have written, I understand what you are
saying completely, despite I have to think about it for moment. To me, I believe you can
comunicate enough to work with international firm.
As for further improvement, you may want to try my first comment to your opening statement
sometimes, i found all the people around me knew english well. so how i can survive ?
As I have stated earlier, the more English you practice, the better you will be. Hence, if you find some
people doing better than you in English, it is likely that they have more practice or experience
than you do. That's all.
If you are looking for speed, then you need to build what I called "Habitual English". That is,
english by instinc, not by thinking. English children don't think about grammar when they speak, but
they are able to speak correctly from habbit. If this is what you want, then I suggest you try to learn
songs made for English children and read a lot of English children books until you know it by heart.
Then try to write it out from memory without referring back to the book. If you can do this, you will be
almost as good as any English person, but you must practicing it a lot. Plus, this is also great excercise
for your memory, and it is a lot of fun to do it with kids such as nieces, nephews, neighbors,
God blesses all,
