    Bec.....

    Hello guys.......
    In the three months later,I would attend the examination of Cambridge Business English Certificate Vantage (BEC).Due to my passing of CET4 and CET6 which are the common certificate on English ,my written English is not bad,but those two examinations don't include the spoken English test, my spoken English is not good.Aternatively ,I practise my spoken English unfrenquently.Because of this, I want to gain some advice about practice of spoken English.Recently ,I found the great forum, and I think that I maybe be capable enhance my level of spoken English by chatting here.Is it correct?Any effective advice?
    By the way,in my part, is there any good mothods to improve my listening in the brief time?
    Thank you sincerely.

    Hi Bec..
    I fully understand the predicament you are in. I'm currently learning the German language and I experienced exactly what you do now. Unfortunately, I have to tell you that there is no "brief or quick" way of overcoming the problem you have. Your command of the language will only improve with constant, regular practice. I advice you to find a practicing or learning partner. Maybe someone who was studying the English language with you at the same instition. You can agree to meet one another regularly for coffee or tea. In this time you will then only speak to one another in English. I guarantee that you will significantly improve your spoken English. It worked for me when I started learning the German language..

    Good luck!!

    In addition to Levona's good advice, you can look for people to speak with via Skype, etc.

    I have a question to everyone:
    What if my English very bad, and I'll practice it with people who's English not good enough, is there any chance that my English will be even worse?

    I think it would be hard to improve when your partner's English is not good too.
