In college 50 years ago. I don't speak, understand or read fluently but I can have a simple conversation. My wife and I took a long dreamed of trip to Moscow and St. Petersburg in 2019. I tried to type my responses here in Russian but it doesn't seem to work.
You play very well, better than I, and so do your friends.
And I am in English only through a computer program. Of course, I can carry on a simple conversation, but so that fluently - I cannot. No practice - there is no one to exercise with, and I live far away, in Siberia, near Lake Baikal - the city of Irkutsk
