"The table is near the tree."
Translation:Стол — возле дерева.
I need a little explanation of this preposition, to mean "near" i knew "недалеко от, около" but nobody taught me about this one
Synonyms are "рядом, близко, недалеко, около, близ, подле, при, у" for word "возле". In english you can use beside, by, near.
рядом дома = near the house возле дома = near the house
Is the hyphen really used in Russian?
Correct me if I'm wrong, please, but it seems like it's used in the same way a colon (' : ') would be used in other languages such as French and English...
