I hope I found the right section to talk a bit off-topic.
Last Saturday (10/02) I've been to a coffee bar attended by many people of different nationalities.
I got to talk to a Russian lady in her 30s, and after leaving the coffee bar, we walked around the town for some more time, until we split up.
I spoke to her almost always in Russian, for a few hours. Just told a few English words to talk about food and cooking, the kind of vocabulary I didn't bother learn in Russian so far.
Well, my Russian turned out better than what I would expect. The last time I had actually spoken in Russian face to face was during my short trip to Russia last June. Back then I had to speak mainly in English, and whenever I tried to speak in Russian, I had to take a break at every word pronounced.
So, how is it possible that, after not talking in Russian for eight months, I've managed to suddenly get enough fluency to keep a conversation in Russian for a few hours, without ever stuttering?
If this question is unrelated to anything on this forum anyway, feel free to remove my informal question.
