    Something not addressed here.... I assume we can't use these rules if I'm saying I lost HER keys, or He invited MY friend.... where there's a mismatch and the subject doesn't match the posesssive pronoun. Thx.

      Sure, as I said in the lesson only if the possessive pronoun is the same as a personal pronoun, then we can use СВОЙ (I - my, you - your, he - his, she - her, they - their, we - our)

    I wonder what your thoughts are about a persons age in regards to learning a new language. I am almost 46 years old and want to learn Russian. Do you think my age is too old to learn Russian.

      No, your not. Maybe (just maybe) it will be harder at first, but be patient. It's important to get lesson in classroom, Skype & You Tube are nice to begin with but it's not enough if you are serious in your goal to speak russian.

    Аааааа! Поняятно! Так, щас я лучше понимаю (ну я надеюсь). Я до сих пор не понял когда мне нужно было использовать "свой" или "твой" или другие местоимения.
    Так значит я могу сказать: Скажи мне твой номер телефону.
    Но лучше сказать: Скажи мне свой номер телефону. Да?
    Thank you!!

    Excellent lesson, thank you!
    I don't mean to be nit-picky here, but I feel like the way you pronounce the English word "video" (and some other words with the letter 'v' in them) sounds more like "wideo" or "uideo", while the 'v' should be very similar to the Russian sound 'в' as in for example 'свой', 'вам' or 'вы'. Same goes for "have" etc. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong :D

    • vistagraphsnet

      I teach Russian immigrants the English language and virtually everyone does not pronounce words starting with V correctly, Knowing that, I teach them to put their bottom lip under their top teeth and then blow out the letter V, Works fine. But she is an exceptional speaker of the English language, Remember they have been speaking Russian for a long time and old habits are difficult to break. That you understood her should be entertaining and pat yourself on the back for paying attention.

      My mother, who was born in Russia and spoke Russian at home growing up, did the same thing. I think it has a lot to do with the way a person first learns to pronounce certain words. One who learns to pronounce a word a specific way will continue to do so unless he or she consciously works to change it. Fortunately for me, I had my mother to help me correct my bad pronunciation of Russian. :) I never could get that soft ль sound, as in мальчик. Constant correction changed that. Fortunately, Russians aren't egotistical like Americans. Russians enjoy, and even invite, help. They have a more practical view. Americans view corrections as insults.

    Своё собственное мнение должен иметь каждый из нас.
    Anyone should have his own opinion.

      RU-LAND CLUB  2 years ago

      Юрий Арутюнян верно, в данном случае местоимение СВОЁ относится к личному местоимению НАС, которое входит в состав подлежащего КАЖДЫЙ ИЗ НАС :)
      Более сложный пример, спасибо 😊

    Very good lesson. Thank you Nika. At 7:40, it's more natural to say "My office is located (over) there." for там нахоится мой офис. The imperative mood exception is helpful for me: помой свою машину - wash your car. (For beginners, the verb to wash is мыть/помыть).

      Tuan thank you 😊 Glad that it helps))
