Hi Sariyya, it's good to see you here 😀

I did try to learn Russian, and because I'm Polish and our languages are similar, I found it fairly approachable. I can imagine that for speakers of unrelated languages, it's a different story.

Learning Russian can be a bit of a challenge for a few reasons. Firstly, the Russian alphabet is different from the English one, which means you'll need to learn a new set of characters. This can take some time and effort, but with practice, it's definitely achievable.

Another reason Russian can be challenging is that the language has a complex grammar system. It has six cases, which means that words change their endings depending on their function in a sentence. This can take some getting used to, but again, with practice and exposure, it becomes easier.

Finally, Russian pronunciation can also be a bit tricky for English speakers. There are sounds in Russian that don't exist in English, and vice versa. Learning to pronounce words correctly can be a challenge, but it's definitely doable.

Overall, while Russian may seem daunting at first, with time and effort, anyone can learn it!
