    I've been going...?

    My friend is normally saying that to me "I've been going your girl-friend."

    Does it mean he fxxks my girl-friend?
    Is the sentence impolite?
    What does the sentence mean?

    Ask him what he means in your own language.

    Why do you think that 'he' can speak the OP's own language?

    Note my changes above. There was no need to use a swear word (even though you put "xx" in the middle of it). Note that "girlfriend" is a single word.

    I have no idea what your friend means. It is ungrammatical and meaningless.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    He's his friend, so I guessed they speak the same language.

    Re: I've been going...?

    My friend from spoke an English country.
    His native speaker language is English, I'm not.
    So, I don't know English.

    P.S He doesn't know Chinese.

    If he's saying "I'm doing your girlfriend" it means he's having sex with her. If he's saying "I'm going your girlfriend" it is meaningless.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Alternatively, the OP can ask his girlfriend what his foreign friend is doing with her.
    Not a teacher.

    If they could speak the same language, why did they have to speak English, which was not their native language?
