    I became a spam target for Pinterest, but since there is interesting stuff I did not block it.

    But I would say that "Здравствуйте" is formal as "How do you do". And to "Hello" word "Привет" [privet] is much closer.

    You reminded me about Finnish guy who told that Finnish is hard to study even for Finnish people. As I take it Hungarian and Finnish languages are considered as a difficult ones in Europe.

    And most linguists consider the Korean alphabet as a most perfect one. I read article about it and I was deeply impressed indeed.

    Learn to read Russian in 15 minutes??? I suppose more chance of that than trying to interpret a drunken Scotsman.

    Try Estonian. Finnish is kind of similar.

    I know the method to increase chances - you should be drunken too.

    The thing with languages is that it depends on your native one.
    For example my native language (Romanian) is apparently considered easy to learn by native English speakers while Turkish is considered medium. I for one honestly found Turkish to be the simplest language I've came across so far. There are no genders, and through that you've probably eliminated a quarter of the grammar.
    Akin to Turkish, I found German fairly straightforward. The grammatical constructs are familiar to me and those long-ass words make a lot of sense and actually make the vocabulary significantly easier down the road.

    What I don't understand how Romanian is considered easy when it has 5 cases, while German is considered medium with 4. Yet the languages share most of the grammatical constructs and English is even a Germanic language.

    руки вверх was probably the first I learned ...(hands up) ...now I mostly can guess most of the Russian alphabet - the most useful words are ресторан .... водка. You may guess what they mean...

    My father is Russian, my mom is Venezuelan, and I did born in Venezuela
    My name is Yuriy Yakimov i'm so proud of my name

    PS: I don't speak Russian :'( I tried to learn when i was a kid, but as you know mothers are the only one that seemed to teach their kids their tongue language.
    I remember that i used to practice Russian with my grandmother too, but i just learn few things.

    Actually Its very funny because my grandfather had my name Yuriy, he born in Siberia in 1914, he had a fantastic history about hes life, things related to Japan, China, he defend China from Japan! them he move out to China back in 1952 because of Communism, them my dad born in China, but chinnese people considerate my dad as Russian, and China was very grateful with Russians because of pulling out the Japanese from China.

    Also my grandfather had misterious story about Tibet, about flights in Light aircraft if i remember he told me that in Venezuela he was flying in a light aircraft with his best friend over the Mountain (AVILA) and he told me that they were flying over camps of agriculture, but suddenly they went trough a cloud of haze, and they start to see SNOW falling.. and that's very weird because in that mountain is like impossible to see snow falling.. and they were like lost... for 20 minutes...then they made it,
    they went back to the agricultural fields. they believe that they cross like a portal or something that teleport them to another part of the continents such (Asia, Australia, Europe) what ever


    Also my grandfather used to work in the navy as engineer in sub-marines and ships.

    Sorry i need to learn first English i guess my grammar is terrible, and sometimes i think i may have ADD because I can get easily distracted xD!..... well not that easily but yeah. Anyway interesting topic about learning Russian
