I ask because, as a native English speaker, I'm learning Russian. And the language in general is kicking my arse. It's so dissimilar to English that it's almost comical. It often scares me away from learning it, but it always draws me back after I hear a Russian song or watch a Russian television show. I adore the language and, despite its difficulty, I'm determined to master it.
I recognize that English may be a challenging language at times. For starters, the pronunciation is illogical.
