So many people try to learn Russian / Ukrainian and give up. They think that Russian / Ukrainian is so difficult or that they do not own necessary intelligence to learn it. Both answers are not true. The reason of failure is the wrong approach to teaching:

  • The biggest mistake is to give students more than they can take.
