      Hello Marty,

      “Good morning your honor” in Russian would be “доброе утро, ваша честь”.

    Wow This is actually truly a remarkable find )) The website is great and the content is above average. I know *some* Russian already (I can understand and speak a little at a slow pace of course) so all I need is vocabulary and Grammar. Which you have, in abundance, so thanks. спасибо, ты (все) отлично xx

    Hello! Is it necessary to know the genders(masculine, feminine or neuter) of the words above or it will be taught in the future so that I should not let those genders confuse me for now?

      Yes, it is necessary. The following lessons assume that you are familiar with this topic.
