    Smile how to reach fluency. >_<"

    dear techers,
    i'm a newbie here. i love english but find it very difficult to reach fluency.:) i think english native speakers can understand what i try to express due to right grammar and words but it's just a lot different to how they use the language. when i read what the native speakers write, i can sense something like a fluent rhythm in it but then when i reread my sentences, it doesn't sound fluent at all. i'm anxious about it! how much i hope i can improve my writings.
    so can i ask you a question? what should i do to reach fluency? i know reading does help and i have done so quite a lot. is there anything else that can help? i read english magzines, posts on english forums, watching english programs and listening to english news.
    BTW,i'm living in China.:)
    many thanks to your help.

    You've read, read, and read some more. Now it's time to speak, speak, and speak a lot more. The only way to become fluent in spoken language is to use it.

    I think your English is already very good. At least a lot better than mine.

    Native English speakers speak too fast. And there's no way out. Just read, read and read; listen , listen, and listen.
