Possessives and Gender is the tenth skill (assuming read left to right) in the language tree for Russian. It teaches the use of possessives in Russian, along with lessons (four in total) that also teach the gender system of Russian.

Grammar notesEdit


Possessives in Russian are a little bit complicated, but no fear! An explanation is forthcoming!

The 3rd person (his, its, her, their) possessives are unchanging, so they are no different than English.

The other possessives will change endings based on case and gender. It is best to memorize and/or write these down.
