It's another thing to actually speak with proper grammar and sound natural - IMO this can only be achieved by people correcting you, how would you guess on your own that there's some secret rule in Russian that things need to be this way or that way?
    That is true with any foreign language and it is mostly due to the pronunciation. We are not used to the native pronunciation.
