sorry have been away a long while,
To do well in any language, you have to fill as much of your day as possible with english. you can't hold a conversation unless you can speak clearly, listen well, and comprehend what is being said.
As i said reading is very good, it helps you to think in english (vital) practice reading out loud too, record it, you can help yourself this way, but, will need feedback from others too. with feedback you can learn to express, intonate, etc
when we speak it is important to say the words together that belong together, otherwise you are confusing to listen to, especially when you have a lot to say.
Listening needs a source to listen to, and in the absence of a native speaker, movies and tv shows are great, they give you a variety of voices to practice with, documentaries are good to begin with as there is just one person to hear, who is usually more easy to understand.
You can learn in a classroom, but you cannot learn to be excellent unless you make english your priority, in that, speak and think in english all the time , unless you specifically need chinese. on the way to get a bus, or shopping, doing things at home or in the dorm, think about all this in english if you can, and, when you can't, write it down in Chinese and check it later.
The bottom line is, the more you use it the better and faster you will learn it.
Ever had the experience of being in a conversation, and suddenly forgetting some words ? this is because you probably have not used them enough in context, have not thought enough about them.
you can't just recite a vocabulary, you gotta use it. even if you make up stories about it.
