The hardest thing about Bridge is probably learning the bidding conventions.
OTOH, when you start you don't need to use many conventions. You can get quite far with just Stayman and Jacobi.
Standard American has five-cards high, doesn't it? It is perhaps easier to start with a system with more natural bids, where every opening bid promises at least four cards in that suit. Once you get the basics of bidding and playing, then switch to a more complicated system, with artifical one club bids and the like.
