Also career or what you identify with. : Working AS a lawyer, an engineer, farmer,.... being a player, a traveller, a reader. And some more cases.
very difficult to explain. Need to get a feeling for it by speaking Russian, reading Russian, listening Russian, radio, TV, videos,... no chance to analyze it each time.

Yeah, you also need to use it after certain verbs e.g стать: я хочу стать актёром (I want to become an actor). Also when the verb быть in the past is followed by a noun: e.g когда я был мальчиком (when I was a kid).

Interesting.. thats a good peice of info. I very rarely use ctatb but I read it frequently.

Also, she's introducing me to all of them so I get a sense of when each case is used. I'm not memorizing endings all at once, just trying to figure out when each case is appropriate to use and why a name like Anna could be Anne, Annbi, Annom, etc depending on her role in the sentence

I'm Canadian, so I speak English and learn French at an early age but I'm only bilingual in it, not perfectly fluent
