RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
@One-two thanks for the link, it looks useful, I'll check it out next time I hit Belarus or Russia although hopelfuly by then I'll be somewhat fluent.

Question to fluent Russian speakers: how long did you practice transliteration before you could memorize how a word sounds without spelling out its phonetics?

I'm not fluent yet but I think it only took me a couple of months to be able to read basic texts quickly provided that the vocabulary was familiar. I've been studying Russian for around 7 months and I can now more or less read a text with a lot of unseen vocabulary without sounding like a 5 year old although I still struggle with very long words that I haven't seen before. I think it all depends on how good your vocabulary is, whenever you read a word for the first time it will obviously take longer to pronounce.
