My next steps in learning to speak Russian

I recently returned from three months in Kyiv, Ukraine. I went there to learn Russian (while also working remotely part-time, exploring, and writing). This was immersion learning. I had lessons every day, a big wodge of homework to do every evening, and was exposed to speaking Russian in shops, restaurants and anywhere else I went.
