Of the Hell of Good Intentions

I'm learning Russian at the moment with a view to doing a GCSE in it next April. It's tough going.
The alphabet is full of lots of awkward letters the like of which I've never seen in any other foreign language. Some letters I've discovered do nothing except change the pronunciation of letters it follows. As I read out loud to my Russian teacher it must sound as painful as it does awful.
And there's worse to come. Verbs it seems change according to the tense they're in and the gender of the noun they're working with. Get it? No, me neither....
