Do you have an apartment?

What makes a Russian man truly attractive? For some, it's the fact that he owns an apartment – or better still, a country house and a car, too. The favorite types of property in Russia are the topic of today's podcast. But will they make the man eligible after all?

Today's grammar section will show you how to say that you own something, and how to specify your possessions as yours using such pronouns as "my" and "your".
