I recommend you for practicing to compose some simple sentences. Just say something about each product, what you love and what you don’t. For example,

  • Я люблю кофе. – I love coffee.
  • Я не люблю пиво. – I don’t like beer.

And don’t forget that things we love or don’t love should be in the accusative case, because they are our direct objects. For example,

  • Я люблю рыбу. – I love fish.

Национальности / Nationalities

Today we will learn how to talk about countries and nationalities. Look at the table below. You can see flags and names of the countries on the left. On the right  you can see how to form names of nationalities for men, women and people meaning in plural.  As you can see for a man we need to add the ending -(н)ец to the name of his country, for naming a woman we need to add the ending -(н)ка to the name of her country. And for people in plural we need to add the ending -(н)цы to the name of their country.

But some names of nationalities are formed differently. So you need just to learn them.

So now, I hope, you are able to tell more about yourself in Russian. Try to make sentences like that:

Уборка / Tidy up

Let’s learn new verbs about tidying up. Pay attention to the difference between «стирать» and «мыть«.

  • Мыть — to wash (a car, hands, apple,  hair ect.) 
  • Стирать — to wash clothes (only for textile)
  • Чистить — to brush (teeth, shoes )
  • Убирать — to tidy up, to clean (a room, a table ect.)

words for tidying

I would like you to pay special attention to the conjugation of the verbs «мыть» and «чистить«.

As you can see the verb «мыть» has the letter «ы» only in infinitive. When we conjugate the verb, «o» replaces the»ы«.

Also pay attention to the verb «чистить» — «ст» is replaced by «щ» for Я (first person in singular).
