In Russian, the words that answer the questions "Who?", "What?", "Which?", "Whose?" and "How much?" change in different situations.
Кто? – Друг.
Что? – Машина.
Какой? – Любимый.
Чей? – Мой.
Сколько? – Пять.
1.Мой любимый кот завтракает. (Nominative)
2.Я фотографирую моего любимого кота. (Accusative)
3.Я думаю о моём любимом коте. (Locative)
4.Это фотография моего любимого кота. (Genitive)
5.Я покупаю молоко моему любимому коту. (Dative)
6.Я живу с моим любимым котом. (Instrumental).
6 cases and 6 different forms of one word.
For example: кот, кота, коте, кота, коту, котом.
In these examples, you can see that «мой любимый кот» is in 6 different situations. Is it true that «Мой любимый кот завтракает» and «Я покупаю молоко моему любимому коту» are different situations for the cat? That's why the word "кот" changes. Different forms of the word "кот" show different relations of the cat with people, room, milk, etc. This is the 6 cases!
We must say that we use the same case in different situations.
For example, in the situations «Это мой кот», «Мой кот завтракает»,
«Мне очень нравится мой кот» и «Где мой кот?» you need to use nominative.
The good news is that in these situations, you can only use nominative and you cannot use other cases. The secret of cases is simple: you need to remember all the typical situations in which the Nominative is used, etc.
The textbook JUST LOOK! Russian cases in comics and exercises, A1-A2 makes it easy to understand and learn all 6 cases! It also helps to remember once and forever when to use each case.
This textbook is for you if you
