What kind of schools does this word apply to? Is it just higher education?
Yes, higher ed.
It would not worked for grade school children?
All children who go to school called школярі (plural) or школяр (singular masculine) or школярка (singular feminine)
Or учні (pl) - учень (m) - учениця (f). But those can also apply to a broader spectrum of learners. I think they apply to most kinds of students, but not to those who are receiving a higher education.
Interesting... This is just like in German
я студетка і я дім
You are...a house?
That's a funny sentence :)
ok crazy question but how are the pronunciations of the masculine different from the feminine pronunciations they seem the same as spoken and written..
