Lesson 057

Demonstrative pronouns in the Prepositional case

Today, let’s learn Russian demonstrative pronouns in the Prepositional case.

Here are the demonstrative pronouns (the first one in a pair is in the Nominative case, the second one is in the Prepositional):

э́тот – (об) э́том
э́та – (об) э́той
э́то – (об) э́том
э́ти – (об) э́тих

тот – (о) том
та – (о) той
то – (о) том
те – (о) тех

Now let’s practice use of these pronouns. Nouns and pronouns in the Prepositional are highlighted with their prepositions:

Он живёт в э́том до́ме.
He lives in this house.

Я ничего́ об э́том не зна́ю.
I know nothing about it. / I don’t know anything about it.

По́мнишь, как мы ра́ньше гуля́ли по э́той у́лице?
Do you remember how we used to stroll down this street?
