Like a lot of learners, my Chinese reading and writing abilities far exceed my speaking and listening. As a result, my teacher says I should study a certain page (高级口语（I） p.8) in a textbook, and be prepared to discuss it tomorrow.
Question: How can I prepare for a discussion involving pre-specified Chinese words with my teacher?
This is probably not just a once off---my ability to construct sentences verbally needs work.
I know what the words mean, and I can write sentences using them, but I don't know how to prepare for a discussion involving them.
(Also, I can't get a language partner: (a) I've already got one, i.e., my teacher, and (b) I'm in China, and it's best to stay isolated at the moment.)
