Introduction to Russian: 25

You only say студент if you are a male though. Do you remember the letter а pertaining to feminine forms in Russian?

Well, it also works for the word студент but you also need another к before that а to make it into студентка. You only need the к in this word, but in many other words merely adding an а is sufficient.

How would you thus say to a female:

  1. Skip the word "are". Remember that this is to a female.
  2. The word "физика" changes to "физики", which means "of Physics".
  3. Just transliterate it.
  4. Skip the word "is". Moreover, remember that Russian does not have articles, thus there is no "the" either.
  5. The word order will be "station not here".
  6. The word order for this is "what you want?"
  7. Use "извините" for sorry.
  8. The sentences are just two words long each.
  9. Use the contrasting "О" in the second sentence.
  10. Remember that "you understand" is "понимаешь".
  11. Use the pronoun "я" in both sentences. Remember that "yes" is "да". Also remember that "хорошо" will come right after the subject ("Я") in sentence.
  12. Remember the position of "тут" - it comes right after "Я". Also don't forget to use the contrasting and (which is "О") in the right place
  13. Remember that "Maths" is "математика". Apply the transformation of the last letter to "и" in order to get "of Maths".
  14. Use "можно" for "can I have?". This sentence is just two words long.
