    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    German "studieren", like the Russian verb "изучать", means "to study smth deeply and seriously". For instance, you can "studieren" biology, or medicine. You can say "ich studiere Deutsch", but that would mean you're studying it as a linguist. If you simply learn it, like someone who wants to understand and speak it, you "lernst" it.
