Thank you so much for your comments. I rally appreciate them, and I will take your advice right now.

I agrred the article written that a great way to learning language is discussions with people

Choosing a concrete theme or topic which is interesting to you make learning language much easier. For instance, I'm a big fan of formula 1 racing and I've watched every Grand Prix since 1992. From this year I decided to watch formula 1 in English on SkyTV to enhance my language skills. Till then I've already got a lot of knowledge of formula 1 world in my native Russian language, so switching the language didn't make any troubles for me.

Yes definately, interacting with others and watching local programs will help to improve the efficiency of language. It helps in usage of words in right context.

In my opinion both ways are needed. The only way to domain something is practice, practice and more practice, so you need communicate with people, listening them and asking them. If you need to know something or to get some information your mind will be very receptive and then the learning will more efficiency. But... In the other hand if you want to improve your use of the language in a more accurate and rightly way you need to study its grammar rules.
Really this is the way with your natal language, you are always surround by your natal language, but in the school you learn how to use more accurately, rightly and in a beauty way.
