Learn Russian online: Going Abroad

Going Abroad

Russians love travelling – either abroad or just around. Today, we're heading to the Crimea: Let's find out how Russian it is, and practice saying where we are going.

UPD: On March 18, 2014, Crimea officially joined the Russian Federation, so it is now, in fact, a part of Russia again. The lesson is still useful though: you can learn new vocabulary and hear the story of Crimea before it hit the news.

henriqdp, "Я иду в магазине" (Prepositional case) is "I'm walking inside of the store". "Я иду в магазин" (Accusative case) is "I'm going to the store."
