Other than correct pronunciation, learning a foreign language is not a difficult task.
All it takes is genuine desire and willpower.


Immersion helps, too. Certainly it helped that you had ready access to English-language movies, radio, newspapers, etc., and a ready supply of English speakers with whom to practice.

I'm trying to learn conversational Hebrew, and I'm pleased with my progress, but I can't help but think it would be easier if I were living in Israel.

(Immigrant absorption is somewhat of an industry there. There are actually two weekly newspapers written in "simple" Hebrew targeting immigrants aspiring to learn Hebrew. In addition to news stories they have word games and puzzles aimed at increasing the reader's vocabulary.)
