If I can offer any advice I'd say:

- get yourself lots of "audio" ( authentic audio spoken by natives ) now with Youtube it's really easy to find it. There's an Youtube channel that is somewhat annoying but it's really cool at the same time, if you can understand it probably you'll be able to understand most people you get in touch with:

www.Youtube.com/user/ijustine

Seriously, if you can understand what iJustine is saying your English is pretty good, she's not a teacher, she's just a geek that post lots of videos

- Second, get yourself a very good grammar book, such as Cambridge or Oxford or Pearson, those are worth the money a 100 times over.

- Third get someone to talk to on a regular basis.

In your case, 3 hours a week with someone who knows a lot of English and has a lot of confidence speaking the language would benefit you tons!

- Also, get a very good "collocations dicitonary" such as the Oxford Collocations dictionary because it can tell you how to use the words in sentences ( it's a lot more productive than the common dictionary)

Good luck!
