4 tips how to learn Russian more efficiently (part 1)
by Svetlana Mart

1. FIND WHAT YOU ARE INTERESTED IN

You should choose a topic that appeals to you and take the language plunge related to it. It may be your passion (travel, art, the culinary art, wine), favourite actor or singer (songs, concerts and numerous interviews will be very helpful).

You will perceive the language with materials, which captivate you.

2. TRANSCRIPTION

As our experience shows it is one of the most efficient ways. The essence is to listen to and decipher audio tracks. You must listen to them again and again until you are able to understand everything; as for unknown words you should find them in the dictionary and/or try to guess if the quality of the track is not high enough. And for you to become interested in the tracks just choose materials from clause 1.

3. DIARY

From the moment you started to study Russian (from the very first day!) every day you must write 10 sentences about everything, which concerns you: who I am, what I am doing, what stands on the table, how was my day, what was new, about your plans, opinions, you should simply reflect on everything.

4. PRACTISE EVERY DAY

The plunge level may differ: to read a new text, listen to and decipher a song, merely repeat or listen to some track again, or concentrate on the transcribing of a new audio track for several hours. Every day you must have some contact with the language.
