    read, write, understand?

    Do you guys think that its possible to learn without knowing how to write. I just want to skip the spelling and writing part of russian but able to just read and understand.

    I felt ashamed when non native english learners can write in english even if there's error. I cant even write a simple phrase in russian, i rely so much on copying and pasting.

    Am i not taking the correct approach here, any suggestions?

    Of course it is possible! Most Russians for centuries were able to do it. Basically you must live among Russian-speaking people and stop using other languages so sooner or later you will succeed. More or less.

    I believe for some people it is possible even without real-life language use. The efforts required are really titanic though because it is a way to cut off most sources and possibilities to learn. If you plan to spend your whole life for solving that problem, you can try.

    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
