    Very good, but there are some mistakes:

    I'm driving to the store to buy three eggs. - Я еду в магазин купить три яйцa.
    In the vilage of Gloop, people don't eat. - В деревне Глуп люди не едят.
    I don't have pie because my dog ate it! - У меня нет пирога, потому что моя собака съела его!
    We always eat breakfast in the morning. - Мы всегда едим завтрак утром.
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.

    Очень спасибо.

    1) I always forget neuter is o -> a. Grr
    2) So just the wrong word for people... What does человек mean then?
    3) Why does пирог get an a on the end? Also, shouldn't собакa be in accustive, or does a comma start all the cases over again?
    4) Ok... завтру was a horrible mistake. I swear! I know it should have been завтрак! As for утром, is the м some special case modifier or was утром just misspelled?

    Thankyou again

    Человек (man) is the singular of люди. You can say: "В деревне Глуп человек не ест", but this is very rare form in everyday conversations.

    3) Why does пирог get an a on the end?
    Пирог -- the noun of masculine gender ending a consonant. These nouns usually have а ending in genitive.

    Also, shouldn't собакa be in accustive, or does a comma start all the cases over again?
    Yes, "моя собака съела его" is the new sentence.

    As for утром, is the м some special case modifier or was утром just misspelled?
    Most of all neuter noun with o on the end are declined like this (окном, озером), but there are some exclusions, for example пальто, which has never declined.

    No. Milyana, don't correct me when I'm right.

    Kwatts said, for "X likes Y" you use 'нравится' with X in the genitive.
    I said, its in the dative. We are talking about the 'liker' and not the 'liked'
    Кому нравится эта книга?
    X likes Y
    X = dative
    I didnt say эта книга was in the dative.

    Собака isn't in the accusative because it isn't the direct object of the verb (i.e. it's not the recipient of the action of the verb).

    утром is the instrumental of утро. Утром means in the morning.
    утром - in the / during the morning ( утро = morning)
    днём - in the / during the / by day ( день = day)
    вечером - in the / during the evening ( вечер = evening)
    ночью - in the / during the / by night ( ночь = night)
    весной - in the / during the spring ( весна = spring)
    летом - in the / during the summer ( лето = summer)
    осенью - in the / during the autumn ( осень = autumn)
    зимой - in the / during the winter ( зима = winter)

    Спасибо Т.А.Т.У.

    I haven't learned anything about the instrumental case yet, so I'll trust you until I get there.

    Do you think I should try perhaps writing sentances with at least some coherance?

    It's perfect grammatically but I kinda don't like how it sounds. I'd change words order here: Утром мы всегда едим завтрак. It gives it slightly different meaning, in your variant it sonds like: If we eat breakfact, we always do it in the morning. In my variant it sounds like: We eat breakfast every morning.

    I agree, your variant is really better.

    Since why is a y added on the end of masculine nouns in accustive?

    Я не понял, что сказали по телевизору. - Why is there an y on the end of телевизор??? its not feminine... is it?! Also, понял, doesn't the verb понимать mean to understand, or is yours perfective? Also, is that past tense, because I sure hope not. My sentance wasn't.

    Иди сюда для ужин. <--- Is mine right too? Come here for dinner, come to eat dinner, very simmilar

    Иди вон туда и не возвращайся! - I see all the mistakes, and I get it.

    Where the hell is my breakfast?!?! - Где же моя завтра!?!?
    I didn't translate it literally. the ".... the hell..." is there because I wanted to practice using же.

    Я бежал от волка. - Take out away because it sounds clumsy? And why is волк in genetive?

    Thanks for your help

    по телевизору (dative)
    To form the dative of masculine nouns, У or Ю is added:
    Я сказал Игорю Ивановичу Смирнову - I told Igor' Ivanovich Smirnov.

    Prepositions (в, на, с, без, пере, по, от, из etc.) take cases.
    От takes the genetive. От means "from / away from"

    Для takes the genetive. Everytime you use a prepositions you need to think what case it takes.

    Для ужина. And no. Its would be Иди сюда на ужин. I think.

    When you mean "for" in the sense of an activity or event, you use на + accusative. Like:
    I went to Moscow for my Birthday - Я ездил в Москву на день рождения
    What did you eat for lunch? - Что ты ел на обед?

    Для is more for people or objects:
    Have you bought anything for Irina? - Ты что-нибудь купил для Ирины?
