Languages and stuff

So, I'm starting to get annoyed with myself.  I love languages ad I keep trying to learn them.  But the problem is, I keep trying to learn 5 or 6 at the same time.  Ug!  Turns out, if you try to learn Khamer (pronounced kah-my), Chinese, Hindi, Spanish and Russian at the same time, your brain pretty much explodes and you forget EVERYTHING!!!! Ug, I keep having to start over.  So, since last summer I decided to try and focus on one at a time.  I've been working on Russian since then.  Only Russian.  But I am having a really hard time with it.  They have a completely different alphabet with completely different letters.  I finally learned it and can read Russian now, but I don't know what anything means.  So I went to memorizing a russian-english dictionary.  Thats going ok, and thankfully their sentence structure is pretty simple and verbs have pretty simple conjugations too.
Now heres the hard part.  They conjugate their Nouns!  I am having a terrible time with that.  Since we don't do that in english and it is terribly difficult for me to grasp.
Keep praying for me guys!!!  I will get it eventually... I hope.
