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

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 :p Such as "Volim sisati krv, maloj djeci!" :o and a phrase about riding cats, but only with saddles which I forget :o

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

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