i will never be able to learn a language that arbitrarily genders nouns, because i'd just keep using the corresponding russian word's gender instead

@devurandom I thought it would be a problem but it actually isn't

It's only a problem while you're learning it because you have to think about it. Speaking is more like markov-chaining one familiar set phrase to another, so your brain actually manages to properly pick the right genitals for la maison even of it's gender-flipped from the Russian дом.
