Endings of Russian words.

I learn Russian but i have a problem that makes me slower-endings of words: How have to write and say if prepositions(в, на, за etc.) come and падежи. That is way i have to concentrate endings instead of learning a lot of words. Please, help me. Thanks a lot in advance.

Welcome to Russian.

Prepositions cause nouns to be spoken in the different cases.

Don't be so sure. The U.S. State Department ranks Arabic as more difficult than Russian (explained here).

Ok. But it is not the rule. Difficulty the languages is specific i think. I learned Arabic too(4 years).

I'm not really sure what you're saying. But that is the best-known indication of language difficulty for native speakers of English.

More difficult in fact, but that's subjective really.

Have patience. These take time to come to grips with.

If your profile is accurate, you've been learning all of two days. Practise, read the tips and notes (they're very good) and have a little patience with the language and yourself.

Удачи!

I got the same problem with grammatics in other languages and I just tend to ignore it :D I mean eventually it will get better and you will likely need to actually learn grammatics but imho in the beginning increasing your dictionary is way more important + it gives you momentum to get engaged in language which is crucial (since being engaged will expose you to a lot of grammar as well). Напор и отвага!

Even if you say "Моя твоя не понимает" in russian you would still be understood - maybe Im biased but because russian grammar is so flexible russians are used to riddling out the meaning even if some endings are a bit off. Children don't get taught specifically grammar until school and if I could speak german or spanish as a native child I would consider it an improvement
