What you can try and do is simply listen to a movie in your target language, without any subtitles. You then write down what you hear, thus, you're training you listening skills. Afterwards, try reading it out loud and try to find the difference between the way you hear it on the movie and the way you say it yourself. As time goes on, you'll get somewhat better and will improve.

That is a good way to improve speaking/listening skills but I want to have a real life acitivity so that I can be ready for spontaneity. In Turkey we have a good education in terms of theoretical knowledge but unfortunately we lack in speaking and listening skills. We know that it is much more difficult to improve these skills without practising it. Moreover, we do not have much facility to practise. So I am seeking for alternative ways to do so. For example, I was called by one of online translation center about one of my translations. The question and answer were quite short but I kept asking questions and telling irrelevant things so that I can practise a bit more:)
