    I would not say it is impossible to learn Russian. It might be more difficult depending on your level of motivation, the opportunities you have to practice, or how well you deal with challenges. For me the primary challenges have been finding Russian speakers in my own country, and organizing my learning. I was not really scared of cases, verb aspect, or the genders like most Americans – this does not mean I don't make mistakes! I make a lot of mistakes particularly in aspect, but in the end I have learned from those mistakes.

    The best way to learn Russian is like any other language – you have to set goals, you need to have a strong motivational factor (I motivate myself by listening to my favorite Russian songs, conversing with native speakers, and imagining myself flying on a plane to Russia – there I meet friends, and we then do something fun together), and you need to practice the language and surround yourself with it. Russian is much more than six cases, two aspects, three genders and all those grammatical structures which scare foreigners. It is a rich and flexible language, and is spoken by many wonderful people! :)

    Get a Russian girlfriend/friend. If you could offer them some English or interesting language, you should find it easy.

    Russian is a very ALIVE language, once it tied you, then impossible to get away even in your breath.
