First of all, a huge “Thank You” for watching without fail all the videos that I've posted so far! I appreciate it. You are a shining example of how members could utilize the resources at MyEC for personal or his/her students’ advantage.
I’m also grateful to you for sharing the manner and usage of gender in Russian language. It’s very interesting to learn how gender is classified in other languages. I hope you’ll find the following a little fascinating…
In Tamil, my mother tongue, one can easily tell whether a noun is masculine or feminine from the sound that ends the word: If a noun ends in /...ən/, it’s a masculine and is a feminine if it’s /...i/
Now, regarding your eagerness for another Dose of English: I'm SO SORRY! I’ve to be very careful with my “prescription” and not to overdose my “patients”! (Just kidding) Of course, I’ll upload more videos – a least one for every month. Till then, have fun and enjoy your time at the Club. Cheers!

P.S. Here's an afterthought! I'm well aware that you are skilful at reading and writing Phonetic Transcriptions. Could you pick a few pairs from the video and transcibe them for fellow learners, please. Thank you in advance!
Thanks for another Daily Dose of English! I simply adore these short videos about interesting facts in English and which I also like in comparison with other languages. This time I revised my knowledge of some nouns in English that still have gender. it was interesting to learn some facts about French and Spanish.
In Russian each noun is assigned a gender. Russian has three genders: masculine, feminine and neuter ( neutral). In the cases of words like "father" these relate to physical gender. In the case of other objects, like "pen", "cup", "house" there is no physical meaning attached to the gender. However you will still need to know the gender because it affects how words are formed. Luckily, in Russian it is almost always possible to tell what the gender of a noun is by its spelling.
Gabriel, I'm waiting for another pleasant dose of English....
Have a joyful day.
