General tips: how best to learn Russian from scratch ?
To begin with, we want to give you some tips on how to best organize your classes so that your efforts are not in vain. We recommend:
1. Exercise at least 2-3 times a week for 1 hour
Ideally, you need to allocate English every day for at least 20-30 minutes. However, if you want to arrange a weekend for yourself, do it every other day, but in double volume - 40-60 minutes.
2. Work on speaking skills
Write short texts, read simple articles and news, listen to podcasts for beginners and find yourself a conversation partner to practice your speaking skills.
3. Immediately put into practice what you have learned
Use the studied words and grammatical constructions in oral and written speech. Simple cramming will not give the desired effect: knowledge will fly out of your head if you do not use it. If you’ve Learned a dozen words - make up a short story using this vocabulary, and then say it out loud. If you’ve learned the Past Tense - write a short text using this tense.
4. Do not spray
The main mistake of beginners is trying to take as many materials as possible and work with them all at the same time. As a result, the study turns out to be unsystematic, you get confused in the abundance of information and do not see progress.
5. Repeat the past
Don't forget to review what you've learned. Even if it seems to you that you know the words on the topic “Weather” by heart, return to them in a month and check whether you remember everything. Repetition of the past is never superfluous. In our blog, we have already written about how to repeat so as not to forget anything. Familiarize yourself with the techniques and try to put them into practice.
