    How long have you been studying Russian

    I am deep into my second year of Russian studies now.
    Just want to know how I stack up with the rest of the crowd here.
    I asked this question over a year ago and as I recall, most of the Russian learners were beginners.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    I've been studying Russian for 17.5 years now, as I'm a native speaker.
    I think this poll will be a success.

    Last time I did this poll, I forgot to add the option for native speaker.
    I remembered this time.

    It's good that you remembered to add the option for 'native speaker' this time. If you hadn't added the option, I guess, they would be a lot of votes, such as More than 5 years or Don't know.

    Had to go for "don't know"

    I've been interested in Russian culture for as long as I can remember (even before I knew the meaning of the world "culture", I guess ), but I have never done any formal studies of the language. I just keep toying with it... then I decide I don't have the time to do it properly anyway, and try to run away. But it just keeps coming back

    And to my great surprise, I actually understand a whole lot more than I think I do. Unfortunately, my knowledge is mainly passive.
    Ой, голова у меня кружится |-P ...... and my brain hurts too....

    Self-teaching since last June, but I'm talking a course next semester.

    If it's too simple for what I've learned already then that's an easy 10 credit points, unless the speaking assessment throws me...
    Please correct any Russian language mistakes I make.

    I was absolutely serious! I learn something new every day. We sometimes just don't notice this.

    I don't know... Since about 2001, but never anything formal, just learning "Pidgin Russian" from the Summer students. I bought my first learn to books Summer 03 and sat with someone to learn more. I can read OK, but everything esle is horrendous.
    I'm easily amused late at night...

    Имеется в виду, сколько времени иностранцы учат его
