Introduction to Russian:
Lesson 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:

Are you a student?

Answer: Ты студентка?
