The answer is – some basic grammar knowledge, reading, listening, interest and practice.
Onward is the explanation of our learning method
Put a cursor upon a word that you don’t know and you will see the translation. Omit the words that you already know. Your vocabulary will grow immensely!
Russian nouns, adjectives and posessive pronouns change their endings according to gender and case in which they are used. For example English words “my” and “mine” have plenty forms in Russian – мой, моя, моё, мои, моему, моей, моим etc. Here is a table with adjectives’ endings
How can you remember all these forms? Would you like to cram it, to learn this table by heart?
There is no need for it! You only need to read questions and answers in a hint above the word and notice the color of the word. Each case correspond to its color. Word by word you will remember questions and endings of words in corresponding cases.
Какой (masc), какая (fem), *какое (neutral) и какие (plural) are different forms of the word “which” in Nominative (original) case. They change their forms according to the case as well as corresponding adjectives.
For example – Я читаю новую интересную книгу – I am reading a new interesting book. (cyan colour – Accusative case, cursive – fem. gender)
Question – Я читаю какую книгу?
Answer – Я читаю новую интересную книгу.
Practice the forms of posessive pronouns (чей, чья, *чьё, чьи – whose) the same way.
The materials of the site are prepared mostly for people who prefer learning Russian without a tutor. To get link to site materials for free please write me a private message on facebook.
If you need explanations we can make lessons. At the lessons I will teach you correct pronunciation and basic rules of Russian grammar (types of verbs, cases and forms of nouns, adjectives and posessive pronouns). After that we can practice reading stories together. We can use Google documents, Zoom or Skype.
