    Word for "Hobby"?

    What is the Russian equivalent of the word "Hobby"?

    To give you an example, I want to say to "Studying/Learning Russian is my Hobby." As I don't study Russian full time or professionally (yet!).

    I am writing to a native Russian and so am looking for a word that maybe he would use.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
