At our third meeting we sat down with our notebooks and went through numbers from 11 to thousands, different level of politeness when greeting people, the genitive case, and phrases for introducing myself in Russian.
In Russian each noun is assigned to a gender. I haven’t studied a language with genders but I had heard about them so I had an idea how they work. It still felt pretty difficult considering it affects so much in the whole sentence.
These kind of differences in language are one of the reasons why I like so much learning different languages, they seem so difficult and maybe even impossible at first but when you understand them and can use them it feels really uplifting and motivating.
