Genetive plural is no fun at all when starting out, but you can get the hang of it eventually. Silly Russians

I understand your pain. Slavic languages must be a nightmare for English speakers.

Is the test on the formation or use of genetive plural? For just nouns or everything? Have you got Terence Wade's grammar book, that is a great guide on everything grammar-related, and has a nice run down on the genetive plural...I can re-type the page that is relevant to you if you wish.

Was that just from speaking Croatian? Thats quite impressive Razumeetsya probably translates better as 'it goes without saying' and udachi as 'good luck', but quite excellent anyway

I know two Croatian girls here, but I only learn silly things from them Such as "Volim sisati krv, maloj djeci!" and a phrase about riding cats, but only with saddles which I forget

Yes, we formed it together...but don't worry I don't want to really

I preferred the cat on more, but I can't remember that Oh well, we'll all just have to get over that one
