Hi, I'm Vietnamese and I have the same problem like you but the best thing I can do is try and try my best to read newspapers in English in order to improve my vocabulary.I want to chat and make friend with everybody who like to practise English but till now I can't do it because I don't have much time to chat and I just send message to my friends of course in English. If you want to speak English well I think you should read English books, listen on radio You shouldn't think by your language and then translate into English, you must think by English and speak what you think, gradually you will be successful. Bye.

I think the most useful way is watching the English flims.But you know this is all depends on yourself,if you work hard you can find that speaking English is quite a funny thing.Keep moving ,nothing is impossible!

At last I wish you will finally reach your goal!!!

Thank you for liking my ideas. I'm not good at speaking English too, but I have  been finding how to speak English well and now I think I can practise English by looking at myself in a mirror and speaking whatever I think of, talking to one of my friends who like practising English too in English and making friend with everybody from other countries by the net.

If you have difficulties about vocabulary, you should try and try to read English stories such as : The tales of two cities, Deadlock, Night without end, Adventures of Tom Sawyer and so on. I think when you read much you will accumulate a large of vocabularies.

that are my ideas.

Try and try with your best.

if you want to make friend with me, contact me by sending mail.

I have same problem like you. I understand what people talk to me, but I can't talk back to them like the way they talk to me. I am very upset. Besides watching TV, reading books, I think we should practice to speak English everyday.

I like MaiLanHuong's ideas. Read a lot of books. But sometimes I found a lot of words I don't understand. How can you learn more vocabulary everyday?

This is also my problem, I can read, understand an even write English but I can't speak, this is becouse I'm afraid to say somenthing wrong or funny and always when I tried I have to limit my sentences.
