It's taken me 700+ hours in about 1 year and I still have not mastered an ability to conversate other than "typical american greetings" whereby you exchange pleasantries, maybe a name, and then move on.

Are you using Pimsleur? If you are not, you should be. 700 hrs in a year is almost 1/10th of the year. If your proficiency is this low after 700 hours you are doing something wrong in your practice.

Speak out loud with all the lessons. Mastering a language is a physical act as well as a mental act.

Or you live in a russian speaking country or you can forget about fluency.

I speak russian on a daily basis and I get complimented by russian speakers for my skills and accentuation, but I still don't get 50% of the stuff they say.
