How to use изучать in Russian?

Russian knows several words to say to study, but изучать is the most common to say when you want to say that you mean the activity of studying something for a longer period of time. It’s not used when you mean the general activity of ‘studying’ at a university, that’s учиться.

If you make this into a habit to always pronounce Russian words while you read them, your speaking skills will improve 5 times faster than if you would not do this. It’s a small action that brings big results.
