    You missed "Russian internet bride" from the list.

    or

    "We are adopting a child from Russia, because we are too impatient/wouldn't be suitable parents for an American child."

    I chose other. I'm learning it because I thought it would be interesting. That's more or less the story of my life (at least since I got to University). I don't have any firm goal, I just like learning for the sake of knowing more (I take a pretty strange course load).

    other....I am married to a Russian and we live in Russia. Even with private lessons 2X weekly I still speak like a foreigner (bad accent, poor grammer).
    My husband's favorite line to me when we are shopping or buying tickets, "Don't say anything!!!"
    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

    uhm, I used to want to learn Russian, because I've always found this language beautiful. Plus, considering how close Russia, and Russian-speaking countries are to mine, I've thought it would be a wise decision to take up Russian, especially since nowadays people around my age in here don't really speak other forgein languages than English or German.
    Now the main reason I'm learning Russian is so I can pass the exams and they don't kick me outta uni

    I voted "other" because all of the above choices apply to me, not just one of the choices.
