LEARN RUSSAIN

Learn Russian language




Learning Russian is like learning to swim or learning to play ball. We learn to swim by swimming, to play ball by playing ball, and to speak Russian by speaking Russian.

A good ball-player spends hours, days, months, and even years practising. The more he practises, the better he plays. He has to learn to meet the situations of the game as they arise and react to them immediately. And so it is when we are talking. The ideas we wish to express come instantly to our mind, but there is no time for us to stop and think of how to put together the words we need. Acquiring the ability to use a language automatically, that is without stopping to think, is a process of habit formation. Forming a habit, any kind of habit, requires much practice.

Every language has patterns that are basic and fundamental. Every language has a body of common words used by all the speakers of that language and thousands of other words that are used less frequently. We can understand and read many words and structures that we cannot use in speaking and writing. Every language has many ways of saying the same things.

Learning Russian efficiently requires that you pur your mind on ehat you are doing and have the intention and the will to learn. The time you have is so short that you cannot afford to waste it by giving less that your full co-operation in class and in home study. In other words, you have to build up language habits in Russian just as you build up language habits in your mother tongue.
