For a number of years now I've studied Chinese both in its modern form (Traditional and Simplified characters) as well as Classical Chinese.
The odd thing is that I can read a book in Chinese, but have problems reproducing the same vocabulary in speech. I also have poor listening comprehension. Even simple conversations. I download some dialogues here and listen to them first before looking at the dialogue. I don't really catch much, but then looking at the dialogue I understanding everything.
Is there anything else I need to do besides continual listening practice and conversation practice with my tutor, I wonder?
