"My school is on the right."
Translation:Моя школа — справа.
Right. Моя́ is used with feminine nouns (моя шко́ла 'my school'), мой — with masculine (мой университе́т 'my university'), and моё — with neuter (моё образова́ние 'my education').
No, напра́во in this sentence sounds less natural. Напра́во indicates the direction, while спра́ва indicates the position. So, you can идти́ напра́во (meaning 'to go to the right side', i.e. you move righter) and идти́ спра́ва (meaning 'to go on the right side', i.e. you're on the right side but not neccessarily move to the right), but the school doesn't move, so you can only use спра́ва.
Sometimes this could work, e.g. «Моя́ шко́ла — напра́во» could mean that you need to turn to the right, so it's a direction of your movement. But doesn't sound as good as «Моя́ шко́ла спра́ва».
- Спра́ва = on the right side, at the right side (location),
- Напра́во = to the right side, towards the right size (direction),
- На права́ = for the rights/driving license, to get a driving license.
This would mean "my [Belarusian] school — in reality",
Russian word "справа" is an adverb, it doesn't have forms of different cases.
If you use the word "справа" as a noun, it would be understood to be a Belarusian or Ukrainian word. Russian speakers sometimes include Belarusian and Ukrainian words, usually with negative context (the most common example is "мова", meaning "[Belarusian or Ukrainian] language", usually in negative contexts).
"На справе" in Belarusian means "на деле" in Russian, i.e. 'in deed, in reality, actually'. "Моя школа - на справе" might be a title of an article about the bad state of schools in Belarus, or something like this.
Sorry, I accidentally hit send when trying to add the other quotation marks after "на справа". Can someone please explain why this is not correct, when it seems to be common speech? I also meant to add, my significant other and mother of my child is a native speaker, and I've spent maybe 8-10 months in Russia on the last few years. Moving there next month too!
