Probably many of you heard that Russian language is one of the most difficult languages in the world, probably this stereotype stops many language learning lovers to learn it. But I want to open the truth - Russian language is not the most difficult language. Yes, it is not easiest language among european languages, but not the most difficult in the world. Yes, it has more constructions and grammar rules. Well, grammar is second or third step in learning, First step is to learn to speak (if your aim is not reading classics at once). Russian language has pronunciation similar to spanish and italian, so for native speakers of these both languages Russian will be easier to understand speech. Don't stop at stereotype thinking, if you are interested in learn it - learn and speak it!
