Tell me the secret.
There is a secret....There has to be. I have a friend who is practically fluent in Russian! What is the secret to fluency. I want to be fluent!
1) Learn through interesting content
2) Practice a lot, knowing that it will take a lot of time
3) Maybe ask your friend..?
How do you know he's fluent?
An old man visits a doctor, “Doctor, you’ve got to give me something to make me young again. I have a friend who is much older than me and he says he has sex three times a week.”
“OK”, says the doctor, “so you say it too!”
Anyway, the secret is "tongue" and "language" are the same word in Russian, "язык". Remember, "Язык до Киева доведёт."
Or it is 42, can't choose.
Buddy when you find out the secret please let me know, even I wanna be fluent in Russian
I've been working at it for more than two years and still a long way from fluent...
50 XP or more daily, push your limits but remember language acquisition takes time, 2 years at least to be quite fluent.
I've been studying Russian everyday for weeks. As of recently I have been doing practically everything I can to learn anything I can. I listen to Russian music, tv, Youtube. I study the hell out of Russian grammar. I have a notebook dedicated to Russian. Words, sentences, phrases, grammar etc. I practice pronunciation and articulation. I constantly check to see if I am saying things right. Do things like this to become fluent. Bare in mind that I do almost nothing but study every day and all of my spare time goes to studying Russian. The past week I have spent all day and night studying Russian. how2becomefluent. Hope this helped. :)
Practice every single daily for at least 1hr, but you have to be consistent. As well don't only use Duolingo to learn Russian, use other websites or apps to learn too. And as well read picture books for small kids at first and then go higher and higher. That's how I did with my french. 3 years and then I was completely fluent:-)
People who get fluent do one of two things: Either watch a lot of TV with the audio in the target language, or live in the country (only speaking the target language while there and being around people who only speak the target language, e.g. stay with a host family).
