The System for learning the Russian Cases

Do you know what stands between you and speaking good Russian?

This is not the Cyrillic alphabet, not the phonetics and not the vocabulary.

Yes, you’ve guessed it right “The six Russian cases”.

When learning Russian you can’t avoid them, because they appear in every Russian sentence.

But the idea of learning the Russian Cases seems really confusing and painful!

So what’s this? Why the six Russian cases are so scary for the learners?

Let’s have a look.

The six Russian cases are all about changing the endings of the words.

Any article you read on this topic may scare you by the following explanation:

To form the accusative case, simply learn this long list of word endings. If a word ends in X, Y, or Z, change the ending to W.   Now remember this long list of exceptions. Repeat this process five more times for the other cases, with a totally different set of rules, and exceptions for word endings for each. Now you know the Russian cases!”

No wonder why many learners of Russian get discouraged and stop studying at this point.

If this happened to you, I am excited to tell you the good news!

You don’t have actually to memorize this long list of endings.

You have to develop a feel for how the words change.

The video course I am about to release is to show you the system for getting this feel for Russian Cases.

Why I’ve chosen the most complicated topic in Russian Grammar?

Because I want to make it simple.

I am an unusual teacher. I am a mathematician by education. I’ve got a Master Degree in applied Mathematics.

My challenge is to turn confusing and scary into digestible and exciting.

The course consists of the simple stories. Each story is directly connected with the use of Russian Cases. After the story we will ask several “Whys”, for example why this ending changes to that ending? Why do we use this preposition and not that?

And then you will have to practice and do the homework I prepared for you.

The course is suitable for the beginners and intermediate levels. If you already speak Russian, it will give you a deeper understanding of how the Russian cases work. You will see the Russian cases at a different angle and learn the correct usage of Russian prepositions. You will also build your vocabulary with the beautiful Russian words that I’ve thoroughly chosen for you.

If you are a beginner this course is a good place to start! You will learn how to build a correct Russian sentence from scratch.

And just more good news for you!

Look at this picture. The 6 Russian cases ranked by the frequency in usage. As you can see the most frequently used cases are the Nominative (dictionary) case and the Genitive case.

It means that if you know just the Nominative and Genitive cases, you know more than 50% of the six Russian cases.
