Lesson Transcript

Katyusha: Hi there, hello, hello anyone! Welcome to Russian weekly words with me Katyusha and today’s topic is going to be... “Studying a language”.
[Существительное - sushchestvitel`naye] - “Noun”. In Russian, [существовать - sushchestvavat'] - it means “to exist” or so. “Noun” in Russian is [существительное - sushchestvitel`naye]. [Существительные бывают единственного и множественного числа. - Sushchestvitel'nyye byvayut yedinstvennava i mnozhestvennava chisla. ] - “Nouns can be singular and plural”.
[Урок - urok] - “lesson”. [Я прогулял урок. - Ya pragulyal urok.] - “I skipped my lesson.” Lesson can also be something you learned from your life right, from the experience, not only its cool. So it’s going to be same [урок - urok].
[Изучать - izuchat`] - “study”. [Изучать язык. - Izuchat' yazyk.] - “to study some language”.
[Учить - uchit`] - “learn”. [Учить - uchit`] is a tricky word because you can also use it for somebody who teaches you like your teachers. They can teach you. [Мой учитель учит меня математике. - Moy uchitel' uchit menya matematike.] - “My teacher teaches me math.” Yeah in Russian, it is going to be [учить - uchit`] somebody. [Изучать - izuchat`] - it’s mostly for yourself .
[Язык - yazyk]. As I previously said, it’s a “language”. [В мире существует много языков. - V mire sushchestvuyet mnoga yazykof.] - “There are many languages in the world.”
Okay and it’s over. No more school stuff, no more learning but learning is also good and I hope we will learn some other new and useful words with you next time [Пока-пока - paka-paka].

Добрый день Кэмми.


Со словом "бывают" связано слово "существетельные". "Существительные бывают", "бывают существительные". Слово "существительные" не в родительном падеже.

Почему родительный падеж после "бывает"? Насколько я знаю, это обычно не так
