Is it possible to learn Russian as a foreign language and speak it fluently?
Hello! I tried to learn Russian, but I gave up. It's too hard. I can't understand this language. But I wonder if it is real to master Russian and speak without an accent and with correct endings?

It seems very difficult only if you look at all the aspects of simultaneously. But if you have a plan of learning it with measurable results after each step - you will always know where you are and how long is the way ahead. And also your personal goals should be added to each level you are trying to obtain. And they should be adequate to the level. For example if your dream is to only read Leo Tolstoy in Russian and you are not even A1 level yet - you could be constantly demotivated, cause no matter how long are you studying - Tolstoy will be still too complicated for you. But if you have little personal goals (to read smth special in Russian, to talk to somebody Russian about smth) adequate to the level you have (A1-B2) - you will be constantly inspired on the way! Cause you will constantly see how your dreams will become true.
Hello! As a polyglot, I say : " Absolutely, yes". There is nothing impossible. My native language is Russian. If you have online classes with me, you won't have any accent. Nothing happens in one moment without any attempt, it is quite long way. When you are learning a language, you can talk to natives and get positive energy. I make individual programme for every student. Come to my lesson)

Русский язык один из самых сложных языков мира) Но его возможно выучить, конечно вы будите говорить с маленьким акцентом и возможно путать окончания, но вас поймут!
Yes, you can 💪🏼
You can learn to speak it fluently even though its really hard but its possible. You can master the accent but most likely you wont sound like a native russian.
There are some examples of foreigners who have mastered Russian: the Finnish actor Ville Haapasalo, the Bulgarian investigator Christo Grozev, etc. Sometimes their Russian speech is completely indistinguishable from that of native speakers. To achieve this level, they worked with Russian people for decades, using Russian in their professional activities. But even they sometimes use wrong case endings, and some kind of accent appears. It is important that the language is actively used in your life, tied to your life experience, passed through your own emotions, and then you can reach a high level, but it is probably impossible to completely get rid of wrong endings.
