Learning Russian

Oh those Russians, oh that Russian language… So difficult to learn, or is it? With a little effort, you're already making progress, and we hope that soon you'll master the basics. Step by step – that's the key!

Today, we're revisiting some of the most important grammar basics: Russian grammatical gender and case; and also continue our study of the present tense: today's focus is the singular forms of the second group of verbs.
