However, the Russian language can be learned independently, and it can be native speakers and foreigners alike. The fact that speaking to learn the language no need, enough to learn how to write words and where a comma, is absurd. Maybe native speakers to learn their mother tongue more important than the foreigners. Approaches to the study here are fundamentally different: foreigners are moving from function to form, the speakers - from form to function.
It happens this way. A native speaker already knows Russian and freely communicates to him. He needs to systematize its knowledge to speak and write correctly, and it is not only about spelling and punctuation, but also about style, rhetoric, techniques of creating text and its genre varieties. So don't think that syntax and morphology were studied with you at school just to occupy your time. All these disciplines are needed in order to better understand both the spelling and punctuation. The form was already known to you, now you need to learn about its functions in order to correctly use in life. So if you want to learn the native language fully, not forget the elementary concepts and rules, study again the textbooks.
As you read more. They say that a congenital literacy does not happen. The person who reads a lot, is subsequently more competent than one who does not like to read. When reading form the habit of writing and make your writing as it is written in the calibrated passing through the hands of one editor of the text. Rules - a good thing, but if the rules are not provided with examples and a fair amount of practice, use them a little. Therefore, type in library books - and more!
If speech about foreigners, they should first explain, what they have to say (e.g., ask how and where to go, what's the name of the interlocutor, and so on). You must pick up all the means by which language is expressed by the function, and then to tell people how to Express a particular idea. Through the function quickly learned and form.
Generally speaking, for the study of any language is important room in the language environment. You probably have noticed that people who went, for example, in America, learn English much faster than those people who are crushing it, staying at home. The same thing is happening with the Russian language. Therefore, if a person does not live in Russia or does not communicate with Russian-speaking, he have to watch movies in Russian with subtitles, listen to Russian songs, as much as possible to read. But, of course, in pole position are those foreigners who came to study in Russia: they used to live, fast Russian speech, and language faster fit in the head.
