If you want to practice your English you should get a tutor or a language exchange partner. If you want a friend do not use he/her as your free teacher.

Other tips: read English magazines, books, blogs etc. Watch English movies and listen to English music. Don't be too shy when you have the opportunity to speak English. If you have no one to talk to, talk to your self. Just keep talking. Too many Chinese students can write, but not speak.

p.s. English is not my native language so I don't want to teach it :)

I agree with amylhz and yaxuefang .

Making friends may seem one option most longing for but it may not be pratical.

Have anyone give a thought how an infant/kid learn their mother's tongue .Well, they learned from listening, pratising and perfecting it.

Why not spend some time watching and listening to movies/ film whether it is a cartoon or a comedy.

Monitoring your listening skill by watching different type of movie, once you could understand better,
try to watch something more serious.

Patience is all you need .

What's wrong with having a foreign friend ? He doesn't need to correct you all the time, the simple fact that you're trying to express yourself helps a lot with your English. So good luck you 2, maybe you want to join a local forum in the city you live ? I find most of the people here rather strange and unhelpful.

If you have an English speaking boyfriend to learn English it's YOU that is using him actually.
