Speaking a language I have been watching a lot of videos on youtube about language learning and speaking. There are people that recomend to start speaking at the very beggining, and others that recommend listen and read a lot first and after few months start to speak. Both group of people have arguments that make sense for me. And what about you? What do you do when you are learning a language?

It's up to you. There is no universal method of learning language.

Some people prefer quick start with a set of very useful phrases and borrowing new ones during conversation. It could be comfortable if you visit Russia and have an oral practice. Using such a method you can feel the language and start speaking without learning the russian grammar which could take all your time. But it has a serious drawback: concentrating on speaking patterns, people often neglect the learning the grammar and an ability to construct analogies using new words. Nevertheless most of my foreign friends prefers use this method.

I think you need to try everything and watch what method is more efficient for you.

If you like to speak, you should observe some preconditions:

1. Just listen to the native speaker, and pay attention to his/her accent, pronunciation, repeat the listening process till you are ready to speak as a native speaker. Don't think about the meaning, just pay attention to the accents and pronunciations.

Then , try to speak, and record your voice.

Then , analyze your method of speaking against that of the native speaker.
