Verbs: Present 2 is the twenty-third (assuming read left to right) skill in the language tree for Russian. It has a total of seven lessons. The skill teaches many new verbs, reviewing conjugation patterns along the way.

Grammar NotesEdit

Adverbs with -o/-eEdit

These kinds of adjectives will always precede the verbs they modify.

MutationEdit

Many verbs in Russian have infinitives that change their consonants when they are conjugated (called "mutation"). Mutation only occurs in И-verbs in the "я" form. Below is a straight-forward way of determining what mutation goes with each kind of verb:

  • б, п, в, ф, and м often have an л added.
  • с, х become ш.
  • д, з become ж.
  • т, к become ч.
  • ск, ст become щ.

PlayingEdit

Играть takes в when used to describe a game you are playing, and на when you are playing an instrument.
