     Listen to radio, watch films, search video lessons in Russian,

    try to learn by heart phrases, not separate words,

     at least ten minutes but do it every day.

    You can't learn Russian quickly. The alphabet is far less of a hurdle than people think, but every noun (3 genders, btw), adjective and verb has a possible six different endings. All have to be learned: you can't just 'wing it' without sounding like a rather backward kindergarten child.

    So get started, or the girl will have lost interest in you long before you're capable of saying 'What is this? It's a book'.

    If you're serious : https://www.omniglot.com/books/language/russian.ht...

    I like the "Colloquial Russian" series from Routledge.

    You don't. US Foreign Service Institute says it takes "1100 hours of class" which is 44 weeks minimum. You can cram more, but then it won't stick

      OK, go ahead and try to 'convert your thoughts into Russian' without actually bothering to learn it first. Be sure to let us know how you get on.

    You need to do like for any other language: learn it seriously and practice it regularly.
