    you explain well, but you go so fast when giving exemples i can't follow the exemples which makes all the lesson less understandable

    How do I say 11:58? Без двух двенадцать?

    Okay, excuse me for this question, but how can I say 2:33? I wrote down random readings of time, and I got them all right, except of this one.
    без двадцать семти три--- this is my best try.

    You explained it very well, but to have to think about the next number after what we would use in English and then have to change the case too is way too hard for me to use - so I will just say the numbers as they appear on my watch and make sure I never need to ask what time it is!

    Why is the word for "ending (окончание)" possess the "ие" stem? Doesn't that signify pluralism? Shouldn't it be окончаний, and the plural version окончание? I'm just trying to dissect the language a bit further.

      If you haven't seen already, there are a ton of Russian words with that ending and they are all neuter and follow that similar declension.

      окончание - singular form, neuter noun in Nominative case
      окончания - plural form

    Hi Nika!
    When somebody ask me:
    when I watch Nika's videos?
    ...I will answer :
    There is no time to watch her videos!!..
    It is true, and it will give me time to learn how to say it with hour and minutes....

      Cannibal нет, студенты с уровнем А2 отлично справляются с этой темой, она не так сложна, как кажется)))
