    Hello Bear li,

    You need to improve both your speaking and listening skills then.
    The simple concrete solution is Listen and Speak.
    Encounters with native speakers in real life (preferably) or online will enable you to do both. Choose your partners well. Make sure they are really dedicated to help you or it will be a waste of time.
    By listening to them frequently you will sense an improvement of your accent, sentence building efficiency and a possible increase in your vocabulary, provided you communicate effectively.
    Means of rendering such encounters effective:
    - Concentrate when listening and speaking. Pay attention to what your partner is saying and how they are pronouncing.
    - Keep asking about the meaning of new words they use , sentence structures you don't understand and the repetition of words you fail to pronounce correctly.
    - Let your partner correct your mistakes and repeat the corrected sentences several times.

    There are other means to improve your listening and speaking skills such as listening to spoken English on TV , through Music, movies.
    Attending lectures held in English language could help you too.
    Constantly expose yourself to hearing the language as often as you could.
    Reading loudly and using spelling checkers helps you improve your pronunciation and increase your speaking ability. On the long run it effects your fluency positively .
    Don't wait for tangible results in the short run, but if you persist in practicing those skills you will surely sense an enormous improvement on the long run.

    Wish you the best :)*
