Within this course you will learn to:

  • correctly use adjectives and adverbs (+ their comparative forms); comparison verbs in describing a person’s appearance, talking about their country, the characteristics and trends of modern development of society;
  • correctly use in speech the verbs стоять – ставить/поставить, сидеть – сажать/посадить, лежать – класть/положить, висеть – вешать/повесить;
  • use some cases that require these verbs after themselves;
