Having just started Georgian, I want to add one comment
to our discussion about difficulty.  Georgian's alphabet
is willfully confusing:  there are no less than 8 (of 33)
letters that can quite easily be confused for the number "3"!

"If a man demands justice, not merely as an abstract concept,
but in setting up the life of a society, and if he holds, further,
that within that society (however defined) all men have equal rights,
then the odds are that his views, sooner rather than later, are going
to set something or someone on fire." Peter Green, in _From Alexander
to Actium_, on Spartan king Cleomenes III
