If you barge up to a little old lady and ask her her name in Korean, you may well have mastered the ability to ask for someone's name but you clearly haven't learnt much about the culture: things like communication conventions, the sorts of conversations you can have with strangers and/or people older than you and/or people of a different gender to you and/or people of a different social class to you.

One of my friends runs a blog: https://compassionatelanguage.wordpress.com/ - they've found setting up Skype language exchanges with native speakers helpful because both participants get to practice the language they're learning and it means they don't have to demand attention and education from strangers.
