Learn Russian online: Travelling by train

Travelling by train

Today, we're taking a train! But first, we'll have to buy our tickets– so let's be careful in making the right choice: Sometimes, accepting a less expensive offer can result in a trip you'll regret!

In today's grammar, we'll learn the correct usage of adjectives: words that accompany nouns and change according to their gender.
