    Кукуруза, лук, помидоры, шпинат are okay.

    Your major problem is accentuation in other words.

    You are saying грЫбы instead of грибЫ and перЕц instead of пЕрец. Otherwise it is close enough...

    Especially since I have only been learning for about 6 months

    Russian is definitely one of the harder languages. The only language I have learned a little of, that is harder than Russian, is Arabic.

    I agree with Dimitri. Although today I found out a girl I know and just assumed was English, turned out to be Italian. I was amazed by her perfect English accent. She's not even got an English parents or anything. But now I know I can notice some slight imperfections.

    On TV recently I saw something about language acquisition. It said all babies have the ability to adapt to pronounce any sound. That is, a Japanese baby, placed with an American family and brought up in America will grow up with a perfect American accent. And an American baby placed in Japan with a Japanese family will grow up with a perfect Japanese accent. Beyond a certain age the baby loses this ability. After this it is hard for the person who pronounce new foreign sounds.

    E.g. Ы is a pain for English speakers.

    They say....old habits are hard to beat

    At this point, I don't expect 6 months of learning to bring me anywhere near perfection. Its no big deal to me yet...

    Within another 6-12 months of practice and living with my fiancee (will be here in one week =) I will have much better pronunciation.

    You are doing really well for the amount of time you've been learning. Keep it up!

    I get the impression that Russians usually call potatoes "картошки", not "картофель". Just saying, 'cos nobody else seems t've mentioned it.

    Картофель is a general collective noun for potatoes.

    Картошка - one potatoe

    Две картовшки - two potatoes.

    Картошка can switch its meaning to картофель as well.
