i think there no other way to learn a second language, just keep practicing!

For improving listening, you can watch the English news, listen to the ICRT, or watch a movie whiout seeing the chinese subtitle. Try to keep up their speaking speed and figure out what they said.

For improving writing, i must say that grammar is a very boring thing for me, but without grammar, you just can't write a good article! In fact, writing has its own structure, introduction, body, and summary.
you can read more newspaper, books, editorials.
In this way, you can not only learn to write a good article but also learn more vocabularies.
