    Shastliva

    Hello, I am new to this forum.
    I have not yet started this course as
    I wanted to see others responses.
    Has anyone here tried another program
    For learning the Russian language?
    So far, my studies are saying this is the place to be. How long approximately does
    it take to become proficient in Russian?
    Thanks in advance for all responses

    Hi & Welcome!

    Has anyone here tried another program For learning the Russian language?
    -Excuse me, what do you exactly mean by "another program"? What is the first one to name "another"??!
    Well, Do you consider this site as a program??
    If so, you are wrong. Here is an awesome "forum", to "ask" your questions, "communicate" with people to improve your Russian/English (depends on your native language). And etc etc.

    So far, my studies are saying this is the place to be.
    -Absolutely, this "forum" (not program) can 'help' you greatly.

    How long approximately does it take to become proficient in Russian?
    -It depends on a few things:
    1) Your native language.People who speak Belarussian/Ukrainian/Polish/Bulgarian(= Balto-Slavic/Slavic languages) as their native language, learn Russian much faster.
    2) How much time and effort you put in.
    3) How naturally adapt you are at picking up new languages.

    Withal, It is Not impossible to learn it. But first, you should 'fall in love' with the language you plan to learn!
    So when you face the difficulties, you won't give up.

    According to this website { Russian language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia }:
    According to the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California, Russian is classified as a level III language in terms of learning difficulty for native English speakers, requiring approximately 780 hours of immersion instruction to achieve intermediate fluency.

    I agree that motivation is immensely important in learning a language.

    I would also like to point your attention to the fact that PERCEPTION (seeing, reading and hearing) comes first, before you actually begin to reproduce speech (before speaking and writing). that is exactly how babies learn to talk. First, they observe e adults around them and then they begin to imitate what they see and what they hear. So how fast you will learn Russian will greatly depend upon how often and how much you are exposed to hearing Russian and reading in Russian, as well as observing Russians articulate sounds and converse.

    this website also offers lots of helpful resources. elcome, and May God help you along the way.
