About this training

Watch this video and you’ll know how to say BEFORE, DURING and AFTER with time expressions in Russian. There are several different ways to translate these prepositions into Russian: ДО and ПЕРЕД, ВО ВРЕМЯ and В ТЕЧЕНИЕ, ПОСЛЕ and ЧЕРЕЗ, but which one is better to use and when? By watching this video, you will learn how to use them in different situations, without making mistakes. I’ve included plenty of illustrative examples in the video that clearly show the differences in these prepositions. Join me on this video and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel.
