Mar 30th 2009 3:03PM I personally am Russian, so obviously I can't participate in the quiz. I absolutely agree with what mikey says,
"The language itself (grammar, rules)? Very hard. Two verbal aspects on top of conjugations; three genders; six declensions; plurals that depend on whether a number ends in 1, 2 through 4, or 5 through 0; sentences with no verb..."
It's insanity to teach Russian outside of cognates to someone who asks, because of that. I can't tell them one word because it rarely is only that one word. I can't tell them both male and female forms because those *also* change, and it's just too much time and effort.
