Hi Girella, and welcome Smile

Instead you should write:

"I have been studing English for a few years; I'd really like to improve my English and meet a lot of new friends."

It's better not to have too many "and"s in one sentence.
There's nothing wrong with "very much" in your sentence. But, to me, "really" sounds more natural.

It's obvious that you've already learnt a great deal. I notice that you've gotten some things correct that native speakers often get wrong. Well done!

Iain

Let's correct your sentence.

'My name is Christina, a Chinese girl. My teacher told me about this forum and told me to practise more, because my English is poor. Can you help me with my problems?'

If you want to learn British English 'practise' is the verb and 'practice' is a noun. Can you see the difference? However, in American English 'practice' is the verb and noun.

Also, you shouldn't say 'My Engish is too poor. See the sentence above.

Iain
