    I'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate. I've been studying for about a year on the college level so I don't feel as though I am a beginner. On the other hand I wouldn't say that I am fully intermediate yet either. Maybe by the end of the semester or after I return from Russia this summer.

    I am most crаppy at speaking because I rarely do it. A little better at listening but I don't do it enough. I'm improving at writing though I still sound very much like a blundering fool.. And I'm best at reading of course, because it's the easiest to practice, and noone can see your embarrassment when you screw up... usually.

    Да, это то же самое для кучи людей... особенно для людей как меня, которые занимаются одни.

    Кстати, я сказал бы you have described my abilities in English in every way!

    thank you for correction
    I feel always the same - I write anything in English and then some real English write it in the most simple and logical way - and then I wonder why didn't I myself write like he did?

    I should, in turn, advice you too :
    ...особенно для (таких) людей, как я...
    that is right case in this phrase.
    Я так думаю.

    I am an elementary native speaker.
    I've got a TV, and I'm not afraid to use it

    MasterAdmin - you have forgotten a category.



    I speak по-туристски and would immediately be shot down on this forum for using computer translators.

    Only, I don't.





    So, somewhere seven steps below "Beginner".
    My passive knowledge would probably be something like elementary.
    Maybe.
    Ой, голова у меня кружится |-P ...... and my brain hurts too....

    I rate myself intermediate.
    I am in my second year of self-study.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Intermediate... and that's pushing it...

    I am the most boring Russian speaker ever. Yes-es and no-s from me along with some mumbling and weird groans.
