Question by studentts2: Becoming Fluent in Russian Alone – After some schooling?
I’ve been taking Russian in college for a year and a half, and have satisfactorily learned the russian grammar. I know the cases, the tenses, the aspects, etc. However, I do not have a huge vocabulary or perfect grasp of idiomatic speech.
Because of scheduling conflicts, I will not be able to take Russian next semester, but would like to progress to fluency in the language independently. I am not overly concerned with learning how to speak Russian aloud perfectly. I am more interested in being able to effectively and intelligently read Russian literature of the highest caliber – i.e Tolstoy, Bulgakov, Dostoevsky, etc.
Is there anyway I can reach this level alone beginning with a somewhat intermediate foundation?
