      After learning a language for a while, first real thing to try is to read a book in this language.
      At the beginning it will be hard, but one has to be patient — looking for an unknown word in a dictionary several times in one sentence can be frustrating, but don’t give up!
      After a while, there will be less and less such words — how many time is needed for improvement depends on the initial knowledge of the language and of the book itself (so don’t start with something complicated, philosophical).

      Next level will be to understand people talking in this language, and the last one to start to speak it. Again, patience is crucial. And — don’t wait until it is “perfect”, “a little bit better”, etc — start to speak as soon as possible!
