Hello all,

I have been learning Russian on and off for the past couple of years. When I went to Armenia, I learned a great deal of Russian and can hold small conversations about basic info on myself and the person I'm talking to (where I go to school, what subjects I like, etc) as well as order food and find out where I need to go.

However, I want to get past this sort of beginning-intermediate limbo that I have been stuck in for the past couple of years. I'd like to reach a level where I can read and listen to news with little difficult and hold conversations on more challenging topics such as religion and politics. Does anyone have any suggestions?

BTW, if anyone needs any Armenian lessons, I can help you with that as well. Smiley

Might sound too obvious, but perhaps speaking with Russians or those who know Russian...

^ this.

Best way to learn conversational Russian, is to speak to Russians, in Russian.

Granted you will stumble...but, they will keep you going, and eventually it will get easier.

There's a frequency dictionary of Russian:
http://library.worldtracker.org/Language%20Learning/16.Russian/58.Russian%20Learners'%20Dictionary%2010000%20Words%20in%20Frequency%20Order.pdf

Going through it, you can find out what words you know, fill in the lacuna, and know whether a new word you come across is worth fussing over.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
