The most interesting for me was when people answered that it's just a hobby for them! It must be very exciting and fun hobby to learn so difficult language. It's really very interesting that people from all over the world are keen on learning foreign languages. Unfortunately the Russians aren't so eager to learn languages. Foreigners can face with difficulties in Russian cities, for example in shops, in restaurants on the street. It's very seldom when service staff speaks even English. It's a shame, but the problems have roots in the system of our education. Schools have to pay more attention on learning foreign languages.
